Observe a mountainous island billowing smoke and volcanic ash at Mt. Sakurajima, one of the world’s most active volcanos, floating in the sea 4 km (2.5 mi) from South Kyushu’s hub city, Kagoshima. You can take a bus around the island to the crater or hike on the lava trail along the shore. After a long walk, you can take a foot bath by the sea, admiring the volcanic island, which measures 50 km (31 mi) round and 1,117 m tall (3,665 ft). Halfway to the top, an observatory will give you a view of the summit, where you can feel the power of an active volcano. Add Mt.

  • 要去櫻島,就要喺水族館隔離個碼頭搭船.好多人會搭市電(類似香港輕鐵),但我就搭共營巴士去,行小10分鐘.(遊客可買乘車1 or 2 DAYS PASS,基本上咩都搭得) 去到櫻島搭佢架觀光巴士圍繞個島一圈,中間停幾個站俾遊客影相.但如果識楂車就最好(船可以運車過去)因為搭觀光巴士比較走馬看花. 
  • The eruption of Sakura-Jima and ash rain depending on the direction of the wind.  the ashes in the car, is a rare experience for visitors, residents 干senakattari laundry. Thanks to the cheaper car wash.

It is produced the magma of the Earth's interior erupted quickly on the ground breath drink landscape. Also, I think and still occasional eruptions. During the 3,000-person up to 5000 m, know feel fear so much as Grand. Access can go in 15 minutes by ferry from the Kagoshima City Ferry Terminal. Also, on the lava Plains by car 10 minutes closer to the mountain would like to see the yunohira Observatory within 15 minutes by car, is the best. Dynamic scenery created by nature, enjoy!
