Kagoshima, the Naples of the East

In the southern part of the island of Kyushu, Kagoshima, set on the edge of its bay, lives between the memory of a rich past and the threat of the highly guarded and active volcano, Sakurajima. Immerse yourself in the southern atmosphere of the town known for its slower pace of life...

What to see in Kagoshima?

Kagoshima is easily visited in about two days. The town has many points of interest, in addition to sampling the local food and shopping in its covered alleys.

A must-see for tourists visiting Kagoshima. To reach the small island of Sakurajima and get close to the volcano, you can take a ferry from the port for 150 yen (about €1.20 or $1.30), which will take you to Sakurajima port in 15 minutes. Once there, you can either rent a car, a bicycle or take a tour bus around the island. There is a scenic point high up on the island which offers a beautiful view.
