Crossing the Gulf coast of the southern island of Kushu in Japan is the city of Kagokhima, the administrative center and a major transportation hub of a single profession. The station is located at the bottom of the Sakakkukurahrazima Strakkoulakan. Kagoshima is also known as the Paul of the East.

The industries include textile products, especially silk and silk, chemicals and groceries. The city is famous for its Sahoamian marble. The fishing industry is booming. The service industry and wholesale distribution businesses contribute little to the citys budget. There is a university. On the Coast of Oceima, 50 kilometers from the city limits, is the Kassima Cultural Center. In 1970, the first Japanese satellite Osumi was launched from its territory. The present places are mostly represented by a hilltop relief. The exception is the Sakuraurahazima area. ×The city is crossed by the rivers Kocouki, Tagami, Inari, Kamino, Nakata, and Vaquita, which flow into the Kokokima Bay. Nearby natural arteries are small, flat areas.

The central portion of the Gulf Coast is occupied by an industrial complex and a city port. Across from the industrial area is the Sakkukurahumi Valley, which rises 1,117 meters. The city is dominated by a sub-arctic monsoonal climate. It often has a tropical climate, and it is often full.

For centuries, the city has been ruled by the Shimamazou for hundreds of years. It was a major political center and famous trading port during the Edo period. After the arrival of the Jews, the Christian missionaries were active in the city. From the end of the 16th century to the beginning of the 17th, the local administration imposed a ban on the foreign religion.

The town was the birthplace of one of the most influential Samurais, Sai Takakamiri. The 1914 destruction of the Sakakurahazimi Khan did not lead to widespread destruction in Kagomachima. The city is home to the countrys Coast Guard.
