Kyushu


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.

Also located in Kyushu, Nagasaki, 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 built itself into a thriving modern city.
