Kagoshima, with its own unique Japanese dialect, is set by the sea on the island of Kyushu. The sunny climate, the friendly locals, and the beautiful bay, lead to frequent comparisons with the Italian city of Naples! The city abounds in natural attractions such as parks and aquariums. Having served as the capital of the powerful Satsuma province, Kagoshima maintains its dignified image to date with its palm-lined streets and the magnificent active volcano Sakurajima serving as a stunning backdrop. Kinko Bay is a popular starting point for cruises and ferries as well as activities such as dolphin watching and kayaking. Home to hundreds of onsens or mineral springs, Kagoshima is dotted with public bathhouses that invite you to enjoy the hot springs. Winter time promises to be just as enjoyable with plenty of sporting events hosted frequently.
