Black pork hot pot and kakigōri are a perfect match. In Kagoshima, black pork hot pot is a well-known dish, and we have selected a restaurant highly praised by local people. The main ingredients of hot pot are beef and mutton, but black pork is preferred in Kagoshima. Very fresh, it is cooked instantly after being dipped in boiling water. It's tasty and not at all chewy.

Many tour buses are painted with cute patterns. Chinese ocean liners en-route to Japan berth at Kagoshima, so the wharf is full of life. The nearby aquarium is also popular among visitors. Statues of Saigō Takamori and Ōkubo Toshimichi can also be found here. Saigō Takamori was a warrior, soldier, and politician from the Satsuma Domain during the late Edo period. He is praised as one of the "three heroes of the Meiji restoration".
