    This crater lake has a circumference of 15 kilometers and reaches a depth of 233 meters, making it the largest such lake in Kyushu. Its clear, blue surface is a sight to behold, and a variety of seasonal flowers adorn the lakeside, making for an enchanting scene. The rape blossoms that bloom in January are especially gorgeous. The lake is also home to large eels that reach two meters in length and 50 centimeters in girth, but it is most famous for being the abode of the legendary monster “Issie.”

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.
