Set in the coastal city of Kagoshima, Japan, this webcam captures the iconic Sakurajima volcano in Kagoshima Bay, renowned as the city’s most prominent attraction.
While the last major eruption occurred over a century ago, the southern peak remains active.
Sakurajima stands as one of the world’s most active volcanoes, exhibiting constant volcanic activity. For an immersive exploration of the volcanic landscape, the Nagisa Lava Trail, a 3-kilometer path formed by the 1914 eruption’s lava flow, offers an intriguing experience.
Positioned at the volcano’s base, the peninsula features attractions such as the rejuvenating foot onset (Sakurajima Volcanic Shore Park and Footbath), the Yunohira View Place observation deck, and the Sakurajima Nature Dinosaur Park.
