More Info

Kagoshima offers a plethora of hiking opportunities for those willing to come and explore the southerly Japanese prefecture. Outside of the aforementioned locations, there are plenty of other incredible sights to visit and trails to hike.

Kirishima-Kinkowan and Unzen-Amakusa National Parks both boast excellent hiking opportunities. Located in the north of the prefecture, Krishima-Kinkowan boasts thick forests and some rugged mountain terrain. Hiking to the top of Mount Karakuni and Mt Takachiho are among the favourite activities.

Situated on the western coastline, Unzen-Amakusa also offers some incredible mountain terrain and the chance to hike around an active volcano. Heading up to Mt Unzen is an especially popular activity in the park.

Outside of these national parks, there are various other incredible hiking spots as well. Amami Guntō and Nichinan Kaigan are two quasi-national parks that offer plenty of excellent hiking and scenery too. Akune, Bōnoma, Fukiagehama, Imutaike, Koshikijima, Ōsumi Nanbu, Sendaigawa Ryūiki, Takakumayama, and Tokara Rettō are all natural parks in the prefecture that live up to their designations.

We had a great time with Jun and Aki. They were enthusiastic, organised, they too care of us in terms of food, safety, equipment, etc, and they shared their knowledge about Yakushima nature. The activities were fun. I recommend them. By the way they both had a very good level of English. And Aki even spoke very good French.

Unfortunately, due to illness we were not able to do the trekking tour. But communication with the trekkers has always been uncomplicated. After my cancellation, we stayed in contact with the guide, who even helped me to get a refund. We will definitely do the trekking tour next time we\'re in Japan.
