E-bike ride to the no-Entry zone at active volcano, Sakurajima!

E-bike ride to the no-Entry zone at active volcano, Sakurajima!

Hill climb to the crater of Sakurajima, Kagoshima’s landmark, by E-bike! What will you discover in the no-entry zone that can only be visited with a guide, offering unparalleled views of Japan’s premier active volcano?


  • Climb up the hill to the crater of Sakurajima by E-bike
  • Enjoy the view from no-entry zone with our licensed guide.

Kagoshima city, located at the southern tip of Japan, is home to the active volcano Sakurajima, which continues to be lively to this day. About 4 km away lies a city with a population of around 600,000 people. This is a globally rare region where an active volcano and a city coexist.
The area within 2 km from the crater is normally off-limits, but on this tour, you will safely approach the crater with a guide who has special permission, climbing up the Nojiri River using disaster prevention techniques.

This unique experience allows you to witness the wild and fierce form of Sakurajima up close, feel the liveliness of the volcano and the Earth, and learn about the coexistence of nature and humans near a volcano that erupts on a regular basis.
