Mountain · Observation Deck
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.

  • Lovely views over the city... Walk to the top was pretty quick.
