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).

Shiroyama Observatory Reviews
靠近市區的高地，有著寧靜的環境，可遠眺櫻島火山，亦可看到朝陽徐徐升起，非常值得一去。可惜日落時被濃密的植物遮擋。 more »Close to the highlands of the city, there is a landscape, overlooking the volcano, you can also see the rising side of the sun, it is well worth a visit. Unfortunately, at sunset it is covered by dense plants.
到鹿兒島市旅遊必定要一到城山展望台, 乘cityview bus在城山展望台站下車, 走小一段斜坡就到。在展望台可以見到整個鹿先島市的美景, 更可以望到櫻島火山。在這裡看風景心情特別好。不過黃昏/ 晚上到的話記得要塗蚊怕水, 我被蚊子叮了好多口 >.< more »To lulucity city travel must be a to the city mountain outlook platform, take the cityview bus at the city mountain outlook station, take a small slope to get. The observatory offers a view of the entire deer city, as does the volcano. It's a great mood to see the scene here. But the faint / night to the mosquito afraid of water, I was mosquito bite a lot of mouth . <
Lovely views over the city... Walk to the top was pretty quick.
The view is syco! Is. The souvenir shop is a little lonely. There's no way i can't walk. It's pretty hard. Be careful because the tour bus and the city view bus are different! It is a city view bus that the street train and the one-day ticket are linked.
