Visit the feudal lord's residence and samurai houses with a Private Guide


Japan's feudal lords had their residences outside their castles. In Kagoshima, they still keep one where a few generations of the Shimadzu clan actually lived. It has a magnificent landscape garden against the backdrop of Sakurajima volcano. Then one hour drive away it, there is an area where you can see a group of samurai houses beautifully and meticulously maintained by the descendants of them now. Both are really worthwhile visiting.

Itinerary

Meet at your hotel or wherever you want me to pick you up.
Starting with historical places such as Statue of Saigo Takamori, Shiroyama Park where you can take pictures and go to Iso Garden to appreciate the beauty of the Japanese feudal lord's landscape garden.
