You’ve decided to head all the way down to Kyushu’s most southern prefecture? That’s pretty cool, but what should you actually do in Kagoshima city? Here is a list of the five best places you should definitely check out.

 

Amu Plaza

Amu Plaza is a large department store centered bang in the middle of the city. The plaza itself is connected directly to the main train station, so chances are if you’re going to Kagoshima – you’ll pass by here. Inside the plaza, you’ll find several floors of your typical shops – including a Pokemon shop and a Snoopy shop. Towards the upper floors, you’ll find a wide variety of restaurants, an arcade, a cinema, and even a Ferris wheel. On the bottom floor, you’ll also find a great food market where can enjoy hundreds of tasty treats.

Iso Beach

If the weather is nice, how about spending a day at the beach where you can gaze at the beautiful Sakurajima from afar? In the summer season, it’s a great place to swim and relax. A short walk from the beach is the Sengen-en, a place you can visit (for a small fee) to see beautiful Japanese gardens and folk homes.
