Saigo Takamori made his mark on history during the Meiji Restoration. This bronze statue of the man was erected on the 50th anniversary of his death on Shiroyama, the place where he met his end during the Satsuma Rebellion. Standing eight meters tall, this majestic monument was created by Kagoshima City local Teru Ando, the same man who crafted the famous Hachiko Memorial Statue.

          Kagoshima Main 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ーshochu.
