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.
Explore Kagoshima's surroundings by going to Minamikyushu (Tokoshieni, Tokkoyushi Statue, Chiran Peace Museum, &more), Ibusuki (JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, Cape Nagasakibana, &more) and Takachiho Ranch (in Miyakonojo). There's still lots to do: contemplate the geological forces at Sakurajima, don't miss a visit to Tenmonkan, steep yourself in history at Sengan-en, and take in panoramic vistas at Mt. Shiroyama.

Plan my trip to Kagoshima with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In March, daily temperatures in Kagoshima can reach 17°C, while at night they dip to 5°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Wed) so you can travel to Okinawa City.
