Hike to the summit of Mt. Shiroyama to reach a picturesque observation area, which affords spectacular views over the city and bay, stretching to the imposing Mt. Sakurajima beyond. Most visitors can manage the fairly modest 107 m (351 ft) ascent to the viewpoint, but be sure to wear comfortable footwear and bring along some water nonetheless. Consider bringing a picnic to enjoy at the observation platform at the top. Use our Kagoshima day trip planner to add Mt. Shiroyama and other attractions to your Kagoshima vacation plans.
Mt. Shiroyama Reviews
桜島を見渡せ、街並みも見渡せるのは城山しかないと思います。 天気の良い日に行くと、とても気持ちが良いです。 more »I think that only Shiroyama can see Sakurajima and the city. It feels very good when you go there on a fine day.
西郷隆盛が西南の役で最後に立てこもった場所です。実際に亡くなったのは、１００メートルほど下った場所ですが、部下達と過ごした洞窟もあり、当時が偲ばれます。上まで登れば、市街・桜島が一望できる展望台もあります。 more »It is the last place that Saigo Takamori set up in the role of southwest. The place where he actually died was about 100 meters down, but there was also a cave where i spent time with my subordinates, and i was reminded of that time. If you climb up to the top, there is also an observatory where you can see the city and Sakurajima.
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.
