    Cascading down from an exhilarating height of 88 meters Oko-no-Taki Waterfall is the largest of Yakushima’s waterfalls and has been selected as one of Japan’s top 100 waterfalls. Since visitors can walk directly down to the plunge basin, it is recommended to get up close and feel the intensity of the falls and experience the spray of the falls.

Kagoshima Main Areas

around-area-map

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ーshochu.
