Sakurajima, Kagoshima
(4.4/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • Active volcano in Kagoshima-City attractions, Kagoshima City must symbolize the Kagoshima Prefecture. Take the ferry from Kagoshima City and can be reached easily in a short period of time.

  • 櫻島真的很美,風光處處,我們是由霧島回來,經陸路進入櫻島,再由海路到到鹿兒島市的,陸路無料,海路我們的車 (四米以上不足五米) 收1600日圓,再加上三位乘客每人160日圓的乘船費用,也不便宜呢!櫻島我們去了湯之平展望所,黑神埋沒島居,溶岩展望所等,其中溶岩展望所看日落也很美,有遊步道,且遠望錦江灣,風景真心不錯!如果自駕會比較方便吧,因為看了循環觀光巴士的行程,一小時才一班呢!去鹿兒島,絕對要前...  more »
  • Hotel check-in time was so went on sightseeing bus tours of Sakura-jima natural scenic course. Had been deserted and has been around the Sakurajima island in less than a four-hour tour, but this time of year except for Mikan Sakura-jima off season at some facilities has been closed.
