Cruises from Kagoshima
Kagoshima lies on the southern tip of the island of Kyushu in Japan. It is the picturesque capital of the Prefecture of the same name. Due to its active stratovolcano Sakurajima – Kagoshima's Vesuvius, seen east of the port – and its 'excitable' inhabitants, it is often compared to its Italian sister city, Naples. It also has a similar mild climate and palm-lined streets.
The city features large shopping centres and malls such as Amu Plaza Kagoshima that offers great shopping, but is also famous for the Amuran Ferris Wheel on its roof that offers an excellent view of both the city, the beautiful waters of Kinko Bay, and the volcano.
