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 (Kirishima Distillery & Kirishima Shrine), Ibusuki (JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, Mt. Kaimondake, &more) and Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum, Heiwa no Kane, &more). And it doesn't end there: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Kagoshima City Aquarium, stop by AEON MALL Miyazaki, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Miyazaki Shinto Shrine, and enjoy breathtaking views from Shiroyama Observatory.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Kagoshima driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major aiport is Kagoshima Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
