Chiran Peace Park (知覧平和公園)

Place famous for cherry blossoms

A park built on the grounds of the Chiran Peace Museum. Park facilities include a track and field ground, multipurpose sports ground, soccer field, tennis courts, Japanese archery ground, sumo ring, and martial arts dojo. Entry to the Chiran Peace Museum require the purchase of an admission ticket. The grounds are planted with cherry trees in various places memorializing the kamikaze fighters which took off from an airfield in the area and the picturesque trees near the park entrance have even been used to film a movie scene. When the cherry trees are in bloom, they are lit up at night for visitors to enjoy, and each year in spring the park bustles with people come to view the blossoms.

          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.
