Shiroyama Observatory, Kagoshima

(360+ reviews on the web)
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
Soak up the view at Shiroyama Observatory, a viewing platform located on a hill in the downtown area. Take a walk (or taxi) up the hill to reach the popular vantage point with an extensive view of the surrounding area. See the busy, knotted downtown part of the city, the shimmering bay, and the volcanoes cutting into the sky behind it. Rich in history and hikes, the hill deserves further exploration (just as soon as you can tear yourself away from the vista). It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Shiroyama Observatory and many more Kagoshima attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kagoshima trip itinerary builder.

  • Obviously people go here for the view and its well worth the visit. If you stand in the right spot you get a lovely view of the city and the volcano. We were lucky with a clear day  more »
  • Great view of the city and the Volcano. Take the time to get through the whole park. There are also some wild cats begging for your attention and food.  more »
