    Kagoshima Pref. Kagoshimashi Sennichichou 5-8
    This is the original shaved ice “white bear” shop in the Tenmonkan G3 arcade. The “white bear”, also known as a Kagoshima specialty, is made by pouring home-made milk on finely shaved ice and topping with colorful fruit. The size is quite large so for those who don’t think they could finish a serving we recommend the baby size. There are a variety of toppings such as chocolate and caramel pudding.

    We skipped lunch, hence it is perfect here where we can grab a bite and have dessert. They are separated and located on different level of the building depending on whether you are having a meal...

  • Kagoshima Fish Market
    Shopping
    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 Kagoshima-shi Yoshinocho 9688-24
    This glasswork studio and gallery shop is located next to Sengan-en, one of Japan's most exemplary daimyo (feudal lord) gardens. It creates, exhibits, and sells works of Satsuma Kiriko cut glass. This style of glasswork originated as part of an industry promotion program sponsored by the Shimazu Clan, the lords of the Satsuma Domain. It is one of just a few cut glass studios in Japan that does everything from shaping, cutting, and polishing the glass entirely by hand. Best of all, visitors can watch the studio's skilled Satsuma Kiriko craftsmen at work.

    This souvenir shop is located on the grounds of Sengan-en, one of Japan's most exemplary daimyo (feudal lord) gardens. The marketplace-themed shop is packed with famous Kagoshima sweets, handicrafts, confections exclusive to Sengan-en, and more. Sengan-en's specialty is Jambo mochi, which are large rice flour dumplings served on two bamboo skewers. The confection, which has been beloved since the Edo period, was named for its resemblance to a samurai wearing two swords (a long sword and a short sword). Visitors can watch the shop's craftsmen make treats such as Satsuma-age (fried fish cakes) and kintsuba (a traditional Japanese sweet made from sweet potato paste wrapped in wheat flour dough) through a window. The shop's sweet potato flavor and shochu flavor ice creams are also popular.

Kagoshima 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 - shochu.
