Coastal Encounters

A Volcanic Bay in Kagoshima

The island nation of Japan is surrounded by seas and has many unique coastlines. In Coastal Encounters, we take to the sky, exploring coastlines with a bird's-eye view. This time, we visit Kagoshima Prefecture, located in southern Japan. We view its famous active volcano Sakurajima and explore Kagoshima, which is far from Tokyo but had a huge influence on modern Japanese culture. Highlights include discoveries by the seafront, an area left by a feudal lord, unique seasonings and more.
