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

薩摩富士の名前をもつ山です。百名山にも登録されています。日帰りで登れる山ですが、7合目付近から傾斜がきつくなるので油断は禁物。そして頂上からの景色は絶景です。

朝、早く登山を考えてましたが8時30分になりました。11時に山頂に着き、一息2回目の登頂に成功しました。下山後、山川道の駅でサシミ定食で腹ごしらえ、砂むしさゆりで体を癒し最高の休日でした。

昨年の3月以来の開聞岳登山でした。冬季にさかのぼる約20年ぶり。年なのでしようね。下山途中、足がつりそうになりました。今日は登山客が少なかったようです。百名山🗻薩摩富士。登って爽快感を味わい、南薩摩の素晴らしい景色を楽しんでください!
