Kanoya Rose Garden (かのやばら園)


Botanical Garden

This rose garden, the largest in Japan, is located in a hilly area on the east side of Kirishimagaoka Park. Some 35 thousand wild roses, English roses, and other rose varieties are grown on the garden’s vast grounds. Roses named after royalty and nobles, Kanoya’s own original Princess Kanoya, and other roses bloom in vivid color; the best time to visit the garden is during the festivals held during the peak blooming periods in spring and autumn. Visitors can try flower cutting in a green house and appreciate roses from around the world in facilities like a rose chapel and garden stage. The garden’s restaurant, which serves a wide variety of dishes made with roses, is also popular.

          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.
