Kagoshima sits across the bay from Sakurajima, an active volcano that serves as a symbol of the city and works its way into many aspects of life here.
Get out of town with these interesting Kagoshima side-trips: Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum & Chiran Samurai Residence Garden), Ibusuki (Mt. Kaimondake, JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, & more) and Kirishima (Kirishima Shrine, Kirishima Distillery, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Sengan-en, meet the residents at Kagoshima City Aquarium, take in panoramic vistas at Shiroyama Observatory, and get engrossed in the history at Museum of the Meiji Restoration.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Kagoshima Airport. In September in Kagoshima, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
