(4.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Sakurajima to your Kagoshima travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Kagoshima trip itinerary planner.

  • 櫻島有村溶岩展望所位於櫻島南端的主要道路旁,搭乘遊覽車可到達。可以在全長約1公里的溶岩道中散步、認識火山的地質景觀。也可以登上有村展望所眺望櫻島火山喔!大約需要20-30分鐘的時間。 
  • The Sakurajima is an active volcano next to the city of Kagoshima. Beautiful views of the volcano are available from various points of the city. It's possible arrival at the volcano with a boat.
