Sakurajima

Travel Guide - Sakurajima

Information

Sakurajima, a former island located only 4 kilometers from Kagoshima City, is an active volcano with an altitude of 1,117 meters, and its magnificent existence is the symbol of Kagoshima.
It is said that the volcano has erupted over 30 times in the past, and Sakurajima island turned into the current peninsula at the time of its eruption in 1914.
The lava from the crater blocked the 400 – 500 meter-wide channel which formerly had separated from the Osumi Peninsula.

Although Sakurajima is still very active, visitors can cross to it by ferry and enjoy a lava walk and a closer look at the volcano, still regularly spewing smoke.
