Kagoshima is called Naples in the Orient.
In Kagoshima City in the south of Japan, scenery with a clement climate and the volcano looks like Naples in Italy.
Therefore, it is called, "Naples in the Orient".
Smoke goes up from the volcano "Sakurajima" sometimes.
The volcanic ash gets off in the Kagoshima city in summer.
It is because the wind blows from the south.
When the volcanic ash lies thick, the road and the car are dirty.
Because dirt with the volcanic ash is prevented, laundry cannot be dried on the outside.
There is a charm that exceeds it in Kagoshima though there is such a hardship, too.
It is attractive like a good eating, beautiful scenery, and warm humanity, etc.
Spirits that are called "Shochu" made from the potato are popular in Japan.
Moreover, woman's beauty is known as a Japanese the greatest.
