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

標高が低いので軽くみていましたが、斜度は結構あります。8合目位からは梯子等も出てきます。頂上付近は岩場で手を使って登る感じ。そこそこの難易度? 頂上からの眺望はなかなかです。種子島や屋久島に手が届きそうです。

おかみさんの情報通と接客方に感銘し、従業員の挨拶など快く感じた。料理についても指宿の地物主体に趣向凝らし、量的にも質的にも満足しました。塩化物泉の源泉100%掛け流し温泉は趣向を凝らした作りで何度も入浴しました。最高です!
