The prefecture is studded with hot springs, including a number of national renown. They bustle with visitors all throughout the year, and if you find yourself in Kagoshima, you must go experience the famous sand bath hot springs at Ibusuki City. We also recommend exploring the ocean islands of the prefecture, be it the mangrove groves of Amami Oshima or the Natural World Heritage Sites at Yakushima.
