It's a missed chance if you limit your sightseeing to the attractions of Kanoya because the whole region is laced with a treasure-trove of fascinating cities, attractions and landscapes. While here, consider a trip to the Mt. Uomidake and Iwasaki Museum in and around Ibusuki, roughly 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the northeast of Kanoya.
While you are in Kanoya, why not visit Kagoshima. Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northwest, this regional city is where you can find Kagoshima Prefectural Museum of Culture, Kirishima-Yaku National Park and Kagoshima Botanical Garden. If you still have time left, be sure to check out Kagoshima City Aquarium, Kagoshima City Museum of Art and Kagoshima Arena before returning to Kanoya.
Delve into the essence of Kagoshima by checking out popular local food. Take a tip from the locals and try tonkotsu (stewed pork belly and ribs) or satsumaage (deep fried fish paste).
Making the effort to memorize some common phrases in Japanese is one of the most endearing gestures you can pay to locals you'll encounter in Kanoya. "Isshoni odorimasenka?" is a good example. It means "Would you like to dance with me?" "Where's the toilet?" is also useful, so try getting your mouth around "Benjo wa doko desu ka?"
When the time comes to pack your suitcase and say "Sayōnara", you'll take with you plenty of memories of your time here.
