Situated at the southern tip of Kyushu and stretching hundreds of miles to Okinawa, Kagoshima is incredibly diverse, with sandy beaches, lush forests, mountain peaks and mangroves. It is the only prefecture to have two UNESCO Natural World Heritage Sites: Yakushima’s ancient cedar forests, and Amami Oshima and Tokunoshima, two islands with unique indigenous species. On the mainland is Mount Sakurajima, an active volcano, and Ibusuki, which offers naturally warm sand baths.
