Jp En

Mt. Kirishima is a generic name for the volcanoes in the border of Kirishima City in Kagoshima Prefecture and Ebino City and Kobayashi City in Miyazaki Prefecture. It is selected as one of Japan’s 100 Fine Mountains. It is presumed to be a post-caldera volcano formed in the southern rim of Kakuto caldera basin.

Mt. Kirishima is composed of many peaks including the highest peak of Karakuni-dake (1,700 m), Takachiho-no-mine, Naka-dake, Ohata-yama, and Ohachi. There are a lot of crater lakes such as Onami-ike, Ohata-ike, and Rokukannon-ike. The mountain area is a part of Kirishima- Yaku National Park. The communities of Kyushu azalea can be seen in the highlands.

Mt. Kirishima is the land of Japanese mythology concerning its creation. “Amano Sakahoko,” the three teeth fork-shaped weapon is staked upside down at the top of Mt. Takachiho-no-mine, which is believed to be where the Heavenly Descendant Ninigi no Mikoto descended from Takamagahara Field (Heavenly Hill Field).

桂浜 Katsurahama Katsurahama Beach

Jp En

Katsurahama is a beach located in the southern part of Kochi City. It is an arch-shaped beach between Kami-Ryuzuzaki cape in the northeast and Shimo-Ryuzuzaki cape in the southwest. On the beach stands a famous statue of Sakamoto Ryoma, the local hero who played an important role in realizing the Meiji Restoration. It looks as if Ryoma is gazing far away beyond the Pacific Ocean.

As is sung in the local folk song Yosakoi-bushi, the beach has been a famous moon-viewing spot since the old times. In a gentle breeze from the ocean with warm Japan Current, you will experience a fantastic moment on a night with a full moon. On the day of the harvest moon every year, the Moon Festival is held on the beach, where local food and sake are offered in memory of Omachi Keigetsu, a home-grown poet of the Meiji and Taisho periods.
