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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kagoshima: Kirishima (Kirishima Shrine, Kareigawa Station, & more), Ibusuki (Mt. Kaimondake, Onsen Resorts, & more) and Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum, Chiran Samurai Residence Garden, & more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the geological forces at Sakurajima, buy something for everyone on your list at AMU PLAZA KAGOSHIMA, admire the masterpieces at Nagashima Museum, and take in panoramic vistas at Yunohira Lookout.

To find where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Kagoshima road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Kagoshima Airport. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
