Kagoshima

— 3 nights

Naples of the East

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kirishima (Kareigawa Station, Kirishima Distillery, &more), Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum & Chiran Samurai Residence Garden) and Ibusuki (Onsen Resorts & Mt. Kaimondake). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Sengan-en, observe the fascinating underwater world at Kagoshima City Aquarium, hop aboard Ibusuki no Tamatebako, and steep yourself in history at Saigo Takamori’s hideout.
