Kagoshima (鹿児島市) is the capital city of Kagoshima Prefecture at the south-western tip of the Kyushu, Japan. A prominant port city in Japan's history, it has been nicknamed the "Naples of the Eastern world" for its bay location, hot climate and impressive stratovolcano, Mount Sakurajima, that can be seen from across the bay.
The landscape shown of Kagoshima was based on the view from the Sakurazima Shiroyama observatory.
The restaurant that Keitaro, Naru and Mustumi go to is based on the original appearance of a Satsuma Shabu Shabu restaurant in Nakamachi 1-10-8, Urawa Ward, Saitama City.
