Every year, between mid-October and March, a flock of 10,000 cranes from Siberia come to Kagoshima to migrate. During that time tourists can witness the amazing spectacle of these beautiful birds spreading their wings and flying around the Kagoshima area. The best time to come watch is between 6:30 to 7:00 in the morning to watch the birds take off with the rising sun.
