Kagoshima is a delightful prefecture located at the bottom of the island of Kyushu. The prefecture is known for sweet potatoes, satsuma oranges, and Somen noodles. As well as delicious food, the area is also famous for its volcanic activity in the region of Ibuski. The volcanoes here not only heat up the water in the hot springs but also the sand on the beaches. You can bath in a sand onsen that Japanese people insist is something everyone should do at least once. If you want to experience quirky Japanese culture but are not sure how to go about it then check out this list of tourist-friendly onsen ryokan in Ibusuki.
