Shiroyama Observatory, Kagoshima

4.2
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).

  • 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.

  • 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.
