Sakurajima, Kagoshima

(4.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Sakurajima and other attractions in Kagoshima using our Kagoshima itinerary planner.

  • 這個美麗島活火山經常爆發 ,都是小型的爆發, 沒有影響到附近的居民, 在陽光普照的日子顯得非常美麗, 是鹿兒島必到的景點。  more »
  • Take the road a few kilometres from the ferry port up to the visitor centre and walk the nicely paved walkways for a view of the volcano from the closest point allowed. Good vistas in all directions. ...  more »
  • ASO nice place, ASO is the otokoyama, but-and it is the otokoyama Sakura-Jima is more. And I'm Rocky. Amazing clouds. In front of heavily and raining ash saw one, but the car in for some time,-roses and roses-hurts eyes! People now go to Kagoshima is need an umbrella and sunglasses. Eye sore. Tourists Shobo as was smart, but locals swept up umbrella. It could be mutilated when ash is falling into an umbrella. Slipped on the ashes and the children cried. Hands are on the ground, and yaぶke trousers, and gloom. Piggyback ride, we dash to the car. Even a change of clothes. Clothes are smeared with ashes. But he was impressed by the amazing, Earth alive!. Is place of natural wonders is not so nice.
