Living in Kagoshima

Kagoshima is nicknamed "the Naples of the Eastern World" because of its beautiful bay location as well as its warm and humid climate and the Sakurajima stratovolcano, which forms one of the major parts of the city's landscape. Kagoshima is the capital of the Kagoshima Prefecture and is one of the largest cities on the Japanese island of Kyushu. It is a wonderful city which has seen its population grow in recent years, and expats living in Kagoshima will be able to take advantage of its large shopping area, traditional regional cuisine, cultural activities as well as being able to take in the city views from the Amuran Ferris Wheel. Popular tourist destinations in the city include the Ishibashi Park, built across the Kōtsuki River and the Kagoshima Botanical Garden, situated just outside of the city, which is famous for housing tropical plants and flowers from all over the world. The climate in Kagoshima tends to be dry but cool in the winter, but summers are hotter, with wetter weather in the spring and autumn.

Moving to Kagoshima

House prices in Kagoshima tend to be expensive, as in the rest of Japan and therefore renting may be a more affordable option for expatriates moving to Kagoshima. The city features a number of recommended schools which makes it a great location for families, as well as having good transport links and being just 40 miles from Kagoshima Airport. Expats moving to Kagoshima can benefit greatly from signing up on InterNations, which acts as a community for expats in Kagoshima and around the world who can help you to find more information about the city, what it is like to live there as well as key information about work. Members are able to share advice and keep each other informed about events and developments too.

Working in Kagoshima

Expats searching for work in Kagoshima will also be able to find employment in other industries, with a number of facilities belonging to the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency existing in the area. There are also a number of universities and colleges in the area, which provide opportunities for those seeking work in the academic and research industries as well as providing excellent study opportunities.
