Yoron Folk Village (与論民俗村)

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This folklore museum is located about a 15-minute drive from Yoron Airport and the port. A kominka (old house) was relocated and restored, and tools used in the 1950s are on display and introduced. You can see the cone-shaped, thatched-roofed buildings, which are traditional Yoron houses, and the sugar carts used for squeezing sugarcane. In addition to plant dyeing using vegetation native to Yoron Island, there is also a class to make pure brown sugar by squeezing and boiling sugarcane using an old-fashioned compressor.

          Kagoshima Areas

          around-area-map

          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.
