The Satsuma Peninsula (F, Satsuma Hantō) extends about 50 kilometers south from Kagoshima City, making up the southwestern section of Kagoshima Prefecture. Named after the former Satsuma feudal domain (roughly equivalent to modern day Kagoshima Prefecture), the peninsula offers a mixture of hot springs, subtropical natural attractions and cultural sites.
