A view of Mt. Sakurajima from Kagoshima city

Melissa Whitcomb

Sprawled around the Sakurajima Volcano, the birthplace of the Meiji Restoration, Kagoshima is home to many of Japan's historical heroes. The reminants of samurai strongholds (Bukeyashiki), which are still lived in today, lay scattered throughout the mountains. With few foreign chains, no cable TV, this is a chance to see what Japan was like before the invention of concrete.
