Sakurajima has been continuously active for the long period of 60 years and has greatly affected the residents’ lives as well as agricultural production on Sakurajima and its surrounding areas.
This active volcano, Sakurajima, is a part of Kagoshima City. There are approximately 600,000 citizens living at the foot of Sakurajima and its opposite shore in Kagoshima city. The area has been working on volcanic disaster prevention measures from both the tangible and intangible aspects and has made efforts to improve them through various trial and error processes.
Our city's efforts in volcanic disaster prevention are effective measures supported by our long years of experience and achievements. We believe that we can contribute to mitigating the damage caused by volcanic disasters in Japan and abroad by further improving these measures and disseminating them to the world as a model for volcanic disaster prevention.
Therefore, the city of Kagoshima has formulated the "Volcano Disaster Prevention Top City Concept" with three pillars: Disaster prevention measures to achieve 'zero casualties' even in the event of a large-scale eruption, Volcano disaster prevention education to 'pass on' to the next generation, and Contributing to the world through 'the Kagoshima Model'.
