    Kagoshima Pref. Kagoshimashi Jounanchou 37-2
    Approximately a ten-minute drive from JR Kagoshima-Chuo Station, this central wholesale market was the first to open in Kyushu in 1935. Originally adjoining the fruit market, it was moved due to aging of the building and to expand its size. Although it does not sell to general consumers, you can visit if you apply at the entrance to the market. In addition, groups can also go on a tour with reservations in advance. Some fish caught in Kagoshima Prefecture have been selected as Kagoshima Seasonal Fish for specialty products, and you can enjoy seasonal tastes in the restaurants and direct sales stores throughout the prefecture.

Kagoshima Areas

Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
