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.
Get out of town with these interesting Kagoshima side-trips: Kirishima (Kareigawa Station & Kirishima Shrine), Minamikyushu (Chiran Samurai Residence Garden & Chiran Peace Museum) and Ibusuki (Onsen Resorts, JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, &more). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Sengan-en, take an in-depth tour of Museum of the Meiji Restoration, get impressive views of Sakurajima, and take in panoramic vistas at Shiroyama Observatory.

For more things to do, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Kagoshima online day trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Kagoshima Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 75°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
