To The South: Kagoshima, Sakurajima [Trip Day 7] 南へ:鹿児島・桜島

  Trip itinerary and map

The typhoon went right over Kagoshima overnight and we just had to stay put in the hotel. By the time rain stopped it was already in the afternoon. Public transport was resuming service so we headed out for lunch and then a short visit to Sakurajima (桜島), the island opposite Kagoshima with an active volcano.

It was a short day, and Sakurajima still looked gloomy in the aftermath of the typhoon. But we were glad it was over.
