Kagoshima

— 5 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kagoshima: Ibusuki (JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, Cape Nagasakibana, &more), Kirishima (Maruo Falls, Kirishima Shrine, &more) and Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum & Chiran Samurai Residence Garden). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the geological forces at Sakurajima, take an in-depth tour of Museum of the Meiji Restoration, pause for some photo ops at Saigo Takamori Statue, and enjoy breathtaking views from Shiroyama Observatory.
