This wooden residence is where Saigo Takamori lived for around three years when he was ordered to stay in Amami Oshima Island. It is now a private property managed by the son of his wife, Aigana, and is open to the public as a paid-entry museum. The residence has valuable items such as Saigo Takamori's personal history and private writings, and a stone monument to his wife, Aigana, on display. There is also another monument with the lettering from Katsu inscribed on it.

西郷隆盛が島流しされた際にしばらく住んでいた家。龍さんという愛加那の一族の子孫が管理されています。家そのものは普通の古民家でこじんまりとしていますが、桐野や篠原と写っている陸軍大将の写真があったり、歴史好きの人には満足度高いかもしれません。

到着までに、西郷どん上陸の地や菊次郎生誕地がある。その先を左折して民家に南洲のぼりが目印。通りに4台無料駐車場有り。遠い親戚のおじさんが、「アイカナ」の説明をしてくれる。歴史を感じさせるが、説明からすると、建て替えられたかもしれない。周辺は、売り家や売地が多い。

          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.
