Mt. Shiroyama, Kagoshima
(4.3/5 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.

  • Is the impression of the trip up to shiroyama Observatory wrote is dangerous to start walking at night. Because Nabi Saigo cave walked from dawn, but I even more so I use Google navigation, trail is unlikely because the bus will come to the scary mountain climb and comes meandering roads and cars down scared Google the Saigo cave come through so mountain road on the stairs are no feet, scary and dangerous night excursion buses to use wisely

  • Went here by car. From the parking lot through a souvenir shop along the Causeway and Sakura-jima appears before your eyes. Visit us so much trouble that we recommend.
