Mt. Kaimondake, Ibusuki

4.5
#1 of 8 in Parks in Ibusuki
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. A visit to Mt. Kaimondake represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Ibusuki holiday planner to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Ibusuki

The main resort town of the southern extreme of the peninsula, Ibusuki has a number of accommodations to cater to its guests. Because of the town's focus on its geothermal spas, the primary accommodations here include such facilities on site, including sand baths and traditional Japanese bathhouses, known as "onsen." You'll find the greatest number of choices to the east of the train station along the coast. Some more budget-friendly options exist, particularly the campsites further up the coast to the north.
