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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum, Heiwa no Kane, &more), Ibusuki (JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, Mt. Kaimondake, &more) and Kirishima (Kirishima Distillery & Kirishima Shrine). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Sengan-en, take in panoramic vistas at Yunohira Lookout, browse the different shops at AMU PLAZA KAGOSHIMA, and contemplate the geological forces at Sakurajima.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major aiport is Kagoshima Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
