Mt. Shiroyama, Kagoshima

4.3
#2 of 7 in Nature in Kagoshima
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.

  • I think that only Shiroyama can see Sakurajima and the city. It feels very good when you go there on a fine day.

  • 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.
