The most southern prefecture of Kyushu, whose capital is Kagoshima city (鹿児島).

Kagoshima has a very unique culture, as there is a mainland which is in Kyushu continent, along with so many small islands, which have developed its own unique tradition and culture.  Some say that their culture and even the dialect spoken is closer to the one in Okinawa.

Just before the pandemic of the virus, there is a newly nominated UNESCO World Heritage Site, which we are sure that more and more tourists will be visiting.
