Mt. Shiroyama, Kagoshima

(4.3/5 based on 140 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.

  • 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.

  • Photography is a hobby so I went, but rainy. Knowing rain was also going but did not. Didn't I see truly great Sakurajima on rainy days.
