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). By using our Kagoshima journey planner, you can arrange your visit to Shiroyama Observatory and other attractions in Kagoshima.

Shiroyama Observatory Reviews
是观看樱岛火山不错的地方，正好是晴天，自己是从游步道走上去的，游步道有两条，萨摩义士碑旁的游步道是楼梯比较好走，靠近照国神社的游步道铺满了石子不太好走～ more »Is to watch Sakurajima volcano is a good place, just sunny, he is from the walkway up, the walkway has two, samois monument next to the walkway is better to walk the stairs, near the shrine paved with stone not very good walking
車で、すぐ近くに行けてさほど歩くこともなく良い景色が楽しめます。 夕方5時過ぎに訪れましたせいか人が少なかったので、場所の広さも特に気になりませんでした。 more »You can enjoy a good view without having to walk very far by car. I visited after five o'clock in the evening, so there were only a few people, so I didn't really care about the location.
Lovely views over the city... Walk to the top was pretty quick.
Observation deck, souvenir shop is located on the Castle, view of Sakurajima from here is beautiful. From the observation deck overlooking Kagoshima City in addition to the cherry island is sightseeing recommendations. Car seems to go climb that can climb the stroll from the city by public transport or taxi is easy, parking is also provided.
