Mount Kaimondake at the southern end of the Satsuma Peninsula is a dormant volcano standing at 924m. It is often referred to as "Satsuma Fuji" because of its perfectly conical shape similar to that of Mount Fuji. A 2-3 hour walk up the gently spiraling trail leads to the top, where you can get unobstructed views of a lake in the north and the ocean in the south. Note that there is no toilet on the route.

There is a nature park at the foot of the southern slopes, and you can see tropical flowers like hibiscus, 500 different edible cactuses, and locally bred horses registered as a national natural monument. The Nagasakibana Cape, 20km east, make a good side trip to visit a lighthouse and a cluster of souvenir shops

Beautiful volcano, both to look at from a distance and to climb. One of my favourite mountains in Kyushu

登山的過程一開始雖然都看不到什麼風景,但接近山頂後可以遠眺整個海岸線,很舒服喔。(雖然不到1000公尺,但山頂氣溫仍稍低,建議帶件風衣喔)

日本百名山て九州本土最南端に位置し、またの名を薩摩富士。
標高は924mと百名山でもっとも低いが、海抜120mから広葉樹の森の中を一本道で螺旋状に登る独特な山である。
途中5合目展望台よりは池田湖、7合目辺りでは種子島・屋久島、9合目辺りでは枕崎市等登る位置で異なる眺望が開ける。
梅雨前か秋の紅葉の時期がおすすめか。

人それぞれでしょうが、自分は結構しんどかったです。暑さもあったでしょうけど
頂上は岩場でそんなに広くはありません。
