Kagoshima

What is Kagoshima?

Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula - the most southerly part of mainland Japan - waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await.

Getting Around

For those planning to hop on the speedy bullet train to Kagoshima, the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen takes five hours to reach Hakata Station in Fukuoka city from Tokyo Station, from which you can take Kyushu's own shinkansen from Hakata down to Kagoshima-Chuo Station in 1.5 hours. Kagoshima Airport is just a short flight (around 1 hour 40 minutes) from Haneda Airport, with dozens of flights per day; however, be warned that it can take up to 70 minutes to travel by bus from central Kagoshima city to Kagoshima Airport.
