Volcanoes and hot springs characterize this national park
Kirishima-Kinkowan National Park has more than 20 volcanoes as well as valleys, waterfalls, caldera lakes and rugged capes to explore. One of its main attractions is Kirishima Onsen Village, where you can hop between nine hot springs, all offering various therapeutic qualities. Views of steam gently rising from the mountainside further enhance this onsen village's soothing powers.
