Volcanic hot springs & Samurai houses
The dominant image on Kagoshima’s horizon is that of Sakurajima, the overactive volcano whose frequent dustings of ash bring out the umbrellas as if they were spring showers. The mountain also heats a number of geothermal springs, providing the unique opportunity to relax in a “sand bath” that will leave you feeling relaxed and energized.
For a rare taste of old Japan, visit Chiran and its street of seven meticulously preserved Samurai houses and their manicured gardens. These handsome residences exemplify Japanese aesthetic principles, which reflect simplicity, and a restrained and refined sense of beauty.Download An Explorer Guide +
