Mt. Shiroyama, Kagoshima

4.3
#3 of 6 in Nature in Kagoshima
Hike to the summit of Mt. Shiroyama to reach a picturesque observation area, which affords spectacular views over the city and bay, stretching to the imposing Mt. Sakurajima beyond. Most visitors can manage the fairly modest 107 m (351 ft) ascent to the viewpoint, but be sure to wear comfortable footwear and bring along some water nonetheless. Consider bringing a picnic to enjoy at the observation platform at the top. Use our Kagoshima day trip planner to add Mt. Shiroyama and other attractions to your Kagoshima vacation plans.

  • Speaking of Kagoshima City look here it is. From the Observatory appears with Kagoshima City and Sakura-jima. So it seems had been defense base falls Tsurumaru Castle is a castle of moderate height. It became a battle during the Satsuma rebellion.

  • It is a park gazebo. When taking photos at Sakurajima from the right side better. Cherry Island, such as branches and fences. You can go by car near the Observatory. When weather is nice, you want to go.

  • PMOG Kinko Bay, gardens and with balance and right in front of cherry Island, could also see the different views and sono. Watching the 1876 Satsuma rebellion while watching the scenery and history seems to come to mind.
