Japan’s third largest island and home to some of the most
active volcanoes in the world, which in turn has made Kyushu famous for its
vast amount of natural hot springs.
Kagoshima is the capital city of
Kagoshima Prefecture at the south western tip of the island of Kyushu and is
famous for composite volcano, Sakurajima. Kagoshima has a personality to match
its climate, voted Japan's friendliest city nationwide. Locals carry their
umbrellas everywhere they go to repel against the mountain's recurrent
eruptions, when fine ash coats the landscape like snow and hides the sun like
fog it can be quite mystical and captivating.
The entire prefecture has a
special 'Ash Forecast' as part of the weather report and once ash starts
falling you'll understand why: it stings, coats your teeth with grit, dirties
futons and laundry.

once Japans first location to come into contact with the western world from
Dutch and Portuguese explorers, is now a monument to the horrors of war but has
