Beautiful countryside and great food! Some of the best food I've eaten in Japan and I've been 23 times since 07!


Kagoshima is similar to most mid-tier Japanese cities with one major exception -- it lies next to Sakurajima, one of Japan's most active volcanoes. Gateway to the Satsuma Peninsula and Yakushima, Kagoshina is a pleasant place to spend a day or two. See Sakurajima, enjoy a hot springs bath, and be sure to try the local Satsuma cuisine which differs slightly from what you will find elsewhere in Japan. Pleasant, friendly, and well off the tourist circuit for most Westerners. I'd give it a 3.5 if I could.

Arriving here via cruise ship this was our introduction to Japan. Despite the light rain we had plenty to see thanks to the many covered shopping arcades. We enjoyed window shopping and the interacting with the locals. The city, spread along Kinko Bay, boasts Sakura-Jima active volcano.

Far off the beaten path, at the southern tip of the southern island of Kyushu, Kagoshima is a gorgeous city with a volcanic ex-island, Sakura-jima, that you can visit to go hiking. Unlike the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and Osaka, this city has an unhurried atmosphere more like Kyoto. Don't miss a visit to Iso-teien, one of Japan's most treasured traditional gardens.
