First time to Kagoshima. Took the extra bus (€15) into town rather than the taxi and this was better value. Nice place to visit.

Took excursion to Sakurajima Island. Heavy fog again. Walked up path to view volcano but couldn't see it. :"Shopping stop" was in a dingy area where there was nothing a tourist would care to purchase.

I enjoyed the visit to Arimura Lava Observatory. The weather was beautiful and had a clear view of the volcano. Sengan en gardens were beautiful, the luncheon was great. Enjoyed seeing the Shochu distillery and tasting room

I went on the shore excursion that visited the samurai gardens in Chiran and the Peace Museum for Kamikaze Pilots. Although many exhibits were in Japanese, they had translated some of the letters, poems etc, that the pilots wrote before they flew off to their death and there was a short film in English. Kagoshima looked a very scenic port and I would have liked to have spent more time there. Cruise terminal has free wifi. The shuttle bus (US$10) dropped people off at the Dolphin Port where quite a few took the ferry across to Sakurajima, the active volcano. This is much cheaper than doing the shore excursion.You can see it puffing out ash from the ship if its clear. Read Less
