Kagoshima

Mizuho and I recently visited Kagoshima on the way to meet up with my cousin Julian, who lives at the very bottom of Miyazaki Prefecture. It was definitely the 'longest drive' we've made within Japan, even though we never left Kyushu! Needless to say, it was worth every minute to catch up with him.

Besides looking around in beautiful Kagoshima-shi, one of the standout points was visiting the Chiran Peace Museum for Kamikaze Pilots. Chiran was main kamikaze base in Japan during the Second World War.

Another highlight was seeing Sakurajima, Japan's most active composite volcano (stratovolcano). We also enjoyed visiting many gorgeous beaches driving up Miyazaki on the way home, after having a great time with Julian in Kushima. _____________
