Mt. Kirishima

Mountain
This group of over 20 volcanoes spans both Miyazaki and Kagoshima prefectures. It consists of stratovolcanoes like Mt. Shinmoe and Mt. Takachiho, pyroclastic cones like Mt. Karakuni, and crater lakes typified by Onami Pond and Oike Pond. Because it is an active volcano, care is necessary since part of the climbing route is closed during times of volcanic activity. The highest is the approximately 1,700 meter-tall Mt. Karakuni. Mt. Takachiho is famous for being climbed by Sakamoto Ryoma and his wife Oryo. The visitor center at the foot of the mountain is a popular spot for mountain climbers.
