Mt. Shiroyama, Kagoshima
(4.4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Mt. Shiroyama to your Kagoshima travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Kagoshima family vacation planner.
