Mt. Kaimondake, Ibusuki
(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Dominating the surrounding scenery, Mt. Kaimondake offers hiking opportunities and panoramic views from the top of its volcanic cone. This dormant volcano is occasionally called "Satsuma Fuji" due to its resemblance to Mt. Fuji. Only one path marked with frequent rest stops leads to the summit, winding its way through a dense forest and over rocky terrain. Watch your step on the loose pumice stones and climb with the help of ropes over the trickiest sections. The long ascent will be rewarded with panoramic vistas of the coastline, the lake, and the outlying mountains. On a very clear day, Yakushima Island can also be seen from the top. Wear sturdy boots, sunglasses, a cap, and bring plenty of water. Put Mt. Kaimondake at the forefront of your travel plans using our Ibusuki trip builder.

  • You could visit to the Nagasaki nose during their travel to ibusuki wanting Gaku. Fortunately there are blessed with beautiful weather and snorkeled its overwhelming presence and left equally beautiful shape. Great but over time, such as a lot of angles and perspective. is the word!
