Shiroyama Observatory, Kagoshima

4.0
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).

  • Views from the observation deck is really best down the car, go the evening was beautiful. I felt on the cat, I'm used to people. Riding a taxi so very close to the city, was right. Middle hid Saigo's cave is seen as good.

  • Early in the morning came in the car. About the tourists hardly less parking and eight cars, the local runners. Walk from the parking lot and arrive at the Observatory in 1-2 minutes. This was the great Sakurajima Kagoshima City panoramic background.
