Only did the included freebee, which took us to a cultural museum which was interesting. Customs procedure was long and ate into the time there. Not something Viking had any control over though.

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.

Quite uninteresting place with little character or charm. Weather didn’t do it any favours either

Kagoshima has an active volcano that erupts up to 300 times a year, so good chance of actually seeing eruption while there for the day if lucky to witness. Eruption is brief so must spot before cloud of smoke dissipate.

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

We did a 5 Hour tour of the Kagoshima area with an onboard English speaking guide. The tour was arranged through Princess and was worth the money. We normally don’t do organise tours but due to the location we thought this was the better option and I’m glad we did it this way. To do similar on your own would be more than difficult and certainly not as safe. Read Less

Enjoyed Chian tour of Samurai houses (outside only) and gardens. Friends went to Sengan-en Gardens and enjoyed that tour as well.

Kagoshma is a small port so easy to visit on your own. I took the shuttle into town then took the City view bus where you can buy a ticket on the bus and it visits a number of scenic sights around the city. Especially enjoyed the view from the hilltop but in retrospect should have perhaps caught the ferry across to the volcanic island but time in port was short and was worried about geting back.
