Transportation to Kagoshima


Kagoshima is a historical city watched over by the looming bulk of Sakurajima, an active volcano that regularly dumps ash over the city and erupts a bit every now and then to remind people it's still there. The home of near-mythical samurai hero Saigo Takamori , it's full of sites related to the Satsuma Rebellion.
