Mt. Shiroyama, Kagoshima

Observation Deck
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.

  •  I think fun future cars themselves are not as pedestrian-only promenade walks. Could have no confidence in the leg who climbed on the bus, get off at the foot down way down anyway, but if you're walking, not bus passes, Saigo cave tours & Castle Mountain longevity fountain resting is recommended is. This is the impression is certainly not trail, but during the day if so can be dangerous, but never actually walked.

  • I visited during the city tour. I was using the city Beauvais. Surprisingly high, overlooking Kagoshima City and Sakura-jima. Narrow pavements, pedestrian road, so moving on foot is not recommended.

  • Day went with the ticket. Stay 30 minutes or so, also the bus, went back to the hotel. If 30 minutes enough views. However a nice toilet not around, so small children ride there on stemming from the Castle Hotel until 5 pm, so it's. Entering the door, immediately to the right.
