Sakurajima in Kagoshima, JapanOne of the things Kagoshima is best known for is its proximity to Sakurajima, an active volcano on a nearby island (or what used to be an island — the lava from a 1914 eruption actually connected it to the mainland).

There’s a ferry that goes from Kagoshima to the island every ten minutes or so.
