Volcanic Vistas and Samurai Chronicles in Kagoshima.

Kagoshima, the southern jewel of Kyushu, is dominated by the active Sakurajima volcano, offering a dramatic landscape that merges with the city’s skyline. The area’s rich samurai history is palpable in the city of Kagoshima and the historic island of Yakushima, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its ancient forests and the inspiration for the animated film "Princess Mononoke."
