Kotsuki River Bank こうつきがわかはん

A relaxing and beautiful cherry blossom tree-lined river in a historical site.

A walking trail is located along the Kotsuki River that runs through the center of Kagoshima City. A dynamic view of Sakurajima can be enjoyed on the lower reaches of the river. 
Approximately 500 cherry trees are planted along the trail. The cherry blossoms are illuminated until 22:00 in spring. Located five minutes from Kagoshima Chuo Station, this is a popular cherry-blossom viewing spot.
Well-known Japanese historical figures such as Saigo Takamori and Okubo Toshimichi were born and grew up near Takami Bridge. Near the river, there is Museum of the Meiji Restoration, where you can learn about samurai warriors and historical figures who contributed to the modernization of Japan.
