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

Amazing place to hike. A little bit difficult at the end so take good shoes with you. I do not recommend it during winter because it is very slippery there. Hike takes around 2h to complete (up the top). The best access in case you don't have a car is by train to Ibusuki station and by local bus from there to Kaimon station. (540Yen for the bus).

遠くから見ると薩摩富士🗻と呼ばれるように、美しい山ですがいざ登ってみると岩場あり梯子ありロ―プありで、ハイキング感覚では甘い😱それなりの装備が必要です。
9合目からはほとんどが岩場で凄く大きな岩場の斜面、岩から岩へと伝い歩く感覚で、ロ―プを掴みながら見下ろすと遥か……麓は海🌊
絶景❗️ダイナミック‼️
竜峯山に登った時に、登山口で出逢ったおじちゃんの名言『ダイナミック』をここで使わせて頂きました😉

下山まで5時間以上のハ―ドなトレッキングでしたが、さすがにメジャーな開聞岳は登山者が多くて、人間ウォッチングでも楽しむことが出来ました🙋
