Mt. Shiroyama, Kagoshima

4.3
#3 of 6 in Nature in Kagoshima
Observation Deck Mountain
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 Observatory's elevation is at 107 m maintained as joyama Park. Car climb to just below the observation deck are available (only a few minutes ' walk uphill from parking lot). Sakurajima, Kagoshima Bay Hotel (you can see Kirishima, Mt. kaimondake if the weather is good). You can see historic sites such as the Saigo army halfway up the mountain became the front end of the Satsuma rebellion (aka Saigo Cave).

  • En route to the Castle Park Hotel has a parking lot. Bus stop, is a renowned spot. Parking also visit free, so go easy. Views of Kagoshima City on a hill, so the clean side of the Sakura-jima. Evening becomes a backlight, so putting people with views, take a picture, it becomes difficult.

  • Museum of fine arts, the Museum always paid is here looks free of natural scenery. Worth a go. In the ruins of the war felt natural.
