Kirishima

Kirishima

Kirishima is an active volcanic mountain range that lies on the border of the Miyazaki and Kagoshima prefectures, and is part of the Kirishima-Kinkowan National Park.

It was the first place in Japan to be designated as a national park in 1934. The sacred Takachiho Peak is famous for the myth related to the founding of Japan. It consists of 23 volcanic peaks studded with craters, lakes, hot springs and plateaus. The scenery of Kirishima can be admired all year round due to the region’s seasonal flowers; the mountains offer a perfect backdrop for walking, hiking and trekking.

Kirishima is also one of the best hot spring towns in Japan. There are many ryokan with onsens in this area and you can enjoy many kinds of hot springs while embracing the richness of nature of every season. We suggest that you try the open air baths along the Amori-gawa River.

To enjoy this region, car rental is highly recommended.
