Mt. Kirishima (霧島山)

Event

A mountain with numerous excellent spots for enjoying fall foliage. The mountain experiences a lengthy autumn color season, with the leaves starting to change on the Ebino Highland around late October and continuing in succession through late November in the Takachiho-gawara area, the area around Kirishima Shrine, the Japanese zelkovas in Yokogawa, and the two gingkoes known as the Fukuyama Spouses. Note that depending on volcanic eruptions, entry to the area may be prohibited; be sure to check in advance before visiting.

          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.
