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 historic castle town of Kagoshima on this enlightening half-day tour. Located on Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan's four major islands, Kagoshima was the first city to introduce western civilization to Japan, serving as the gateway for trade and exchange between Japan and the world. With a spectacular setting, Kagoshima looks out across the broad sweep of Kinko Bay to the brooding silhouette of Sakurajima, one of Japan's most active volcanoes.

    Begin with a visit to Senganen, also called Iso Teien, a serene Japanese-style landscape garden constructed in 1660. Offering exquisite views of the bay and volcano, the former summer villa of the powerful Shimazu clan includes artificial rivers and mountains, a bamboo grove, cascading waterfall and traditional poem-writing garden.

    Visit the Shoko Shuseikan Museum, Japan's first Western-style factory. Established by lord Shimazu in 1852 to produce armaments, glass, ceramics and farm tools, it is now a museum detailing the 700-year Shimazu family history. Next, transfer by ferry to Sakurajima lsland to view the lunar-like landscape and spectacular lava fields created by past eruptions. Stopping at the Arimura Lava Observatory, located on a small hill created by eruption in 1946 stroll along a short walkway, offering an excellent vantage point to observe the dynamic power of the volcano. Returning to Kagoshima by ferry, transfer to the ship.
