Mountain Nature / Park
Encounter one of Japan's most active volcanoes, Sakurajima, via hiking trails, footpaths, and more. This site, which has become synonymous with Kagoshima, is always smoking with minor eruptions happening throughout the day. You can view the natural attraction, standing at 1,117 m (3,665 ft) tall, from far away, or explore tourist activities at its base. The easiest way to reach the volcano is by taking the ferry that travels from Kagoshima Port to Sakrajima Ferry Terminal. Here you will find an information center and opportunities for exploring on foot. If you wish to discover more of the area by car, rent one on the mainland and bring it on the ferry.

  • I came in the hope of seeing an active volcano but really a fumarole small had also the. Wing luck that was a cloudy day, so I could not see much but the journey is very pleasant taking the Ferry to von pass cute (cute Pass) is free! It is included in the cute Pass and can be in an hour I took the last bus so I was soon but you can. Do everything in an hour although it is advisable to make it on. The morning bus leaves port from a point of estafeta climate that was down the stairs and made scale in the viewpoints get 5 to 15 minutes and return to the Ferry is a central attractions of is pretty friendly city for tourists
