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.
Step out of the city life by going to Sakurajima and Maruo Falls. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kagoshima: Kirishima (Kirishima Distillery, Kirishima Shrine, &more), Chiran Peace Museum (in Minamikyushu) and Ibusuki (Mt. Kaimondake, JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, &more). Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Sengan-en, make a trip to Tenmonkan, enjoy breathtaking views from Shiroyama Observatory, and take an in-depth tour of Museum of the Meiji Restoration.

For reviews, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Kagoshima route site.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Kagoshima. In October, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to take a train back home.
