Onsen Hot spring resorts in magnificent volcanic scenery

Kagoshima, the southernmost city on Japan’s main island, is overlooked by the striking Mt. Sakurajima, an active volcano standing in beautiful Kinko Bay. Kagoshima is favored by a year-round warm climate and is famous for its Ibusuki and Kirishima onsen hot spring resorts. Located close to the continent and the southern islands, Kagoshima has long been a gateway for Chinese and European culture. This region is also famous for producing many of the politicians, government officials and military men who played leading roles in the Meiji Restoration. International flights from Shanghai and Seoul fly into Kagoshima Airport, which also serves 11 major domestic routes. A popular after-convention excursion is the rapid boat tours to Yakushima Island, a Natural World Heritage site, and other nearby southern islands. Kagoshima hosts many conventions throughout the year, and has an unparalleled range of after-convention options, from onsen hot springs to nature tours, historical sites, golf, marine sports, mountain climbing and great dining.
