Sakura-jima in Kagoshima Prefecture is an active strato volcano with three peaks,
Kita-dake, Naka-dake and still active Minami-dake.
Formerly an island, it became connected with the Osumi Peninsula in 1914 when
lava from its summit closed the channel between the two.
The huge eruption started again in 1955, followed by eruptions 10 to
500 times every year.
This area is famous for “Sakurajima Daikon” Japan’s largest
radish weighing up to 30 kilograms.
||The Ferry connects Kagoshima-city and Sakurajima
in 15 minutes and is operated for 24 hours.
