Shiroyama城山

Mountain

A small, 107 meter tall mountain located in the center or an urban area in Kagoshima City. The site of a castle which belonged to the powerful Kaminoyama family during the Northern and Southern Dynasties, the mountain was also where the last bloody battle of the Satsuma Rebellion took place in 1877. Covered with some 400 year old great camphor trees, ferns, and sweet viburnum, and over 600 other varieties of plants, the mountain is a natural treasure trove home to countless wild birds and insects. A verdant walking path leads to a lookout deck and the sweeping view of Kagoshima City is breathtaking. The mountain was designated a national Historic Site and Natural Monument in 1931.

          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.
