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.
Sengan-en and Terukuni Shrine will appeal to history buffs. Get outdoors at Sakurajima and JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station. Venture out of the city with trips to Kirishima (Kirishima Shrine, Maruo Falls, &more), Ibusuki (Lake Ikeda, Onsen Resorts, &more) and Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum & Chiran Samurai Residence Garden). There's much more to do: browse the different shops at AMU PLAZA KAGOSHIMA, take in panoramic vistas at Shiroyama Observatory, pause for some photo ops at Saigo Takamori Statue, and get engrossed in the history at Museum of the Meiji Restoration.

To see reviews, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Kagoshima holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major aiport is Kagoshima Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
