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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kagoshima: Ibusuki (JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, Cape Nagasakibana, &more), Kirishima (Kagoshima Jingu Shrine, Kirishima Shrine, &more) and Minamikyushu (Heiwa no Kane, Chiran Peace Museum, &more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the geological forces at Sakurajima, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Shiroyama, go for a walk through Sengan-en, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Kagoshima City Aquarium.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiport is Kagoshima Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
