Kagoshima, Japan-port

Kagoshima is Japan’s southernmost major city, and is nicknamed the “Naples of the Eastern World,” based on its caldera bay location, hot climate, and volcano. The majestic view of Mt Sakurajima, one of the world's most active volcanoes, dominates the city's landscape, towering over the beautiful Kinko Bay. The city abounds in historic sightseeing spots such as the memorial site of St. Francisco Xavier, who landed in Kagoshima and first introduced Christianity to Japan.

    Discover the pristine natural beauty, flora and fauna of Japan during orientation tours of Kagoshima and Sakurajima, home to an active volcano.

    Depart Kagoshima Pier for the drive to Kagoshima Honko Port, where you will board the ferry to Sakurajima. Still a mildly-active volcano, Mt. Sakurajima faces Kagoshima, and rises magnificently above Kinko Bay. The majestic volcano constantly emits smoke, at times thousands of feet high. Upon arrival at Sakurajima Port, you will visit Arimura Observatory. Located on a small hill created by a volcanic eruption, Arimura is the closest observatory to the south crater of Mt. Sakuraijma, and one of the few places on the earth from which guests can observe the power of this imposing monolith.

    Next, you will take the ferry back to Kagoshima Honko Port, then visit the Sengan-en Garden, or Iso Garden. Nestled in the foreground of Mt. Sakurajima and Kinko Bay, this garden is a fine specimen of Japanese landscape gardening. Your tour will conclude with a visit to the Shoko Shuseikan, an old textile mile-tuned-museum where relics of the cultural development of Kagoshima during the past 70 years are displayed.

    Following your tour, you will rejoin your coach for the return drive to the pier and ship.
