  • JAPAN TRAVEL: Mount Sakurajima, an Active Volcano in Kagoshima
  • One of the iconic spots to see in Kagoshima is Mount Sakurajima.

    Mount Sakurajima, one of Japan’s most active volcanoes, is located in Kyushu. It stands 1,117 meters tall, and it’s an iconic landscape that can be seen from mainland Kagoshima.

    This volcano is known to be frequently active, spewing ashes and billowing smoke every so often. Although it is prohibited to go near the crater, tourists can still see Mount Sakurajima through observation points.
