Day 1 Kagoshima
9:20 am/13:30 pm: Meet the guide at the meeting point.
Shiroyama Observatory: You can over look the City, Kinko Bay, Sakurajima from the observatory on Shiroyama. Since a fierce battle occurred here in 1877 during the Satsuma Rebellion, the last war involving samurai warriors, there are many historical sites around the observatory.
Sakurajima Yunohira: The highest point on Mt. Sakurajima open to the general public. From the observatory, you can see a rough lava field and, at times, rising plumes of volcanic smoke. Taking inspiration from the name Sakurajima (cherry blossom island), the roof over the observation deck is shaped like a cherry blossom petal.
Sengan-en Garden: It is also known as Isoteien, is a Japanese style landscape garden along the coast north of downtown Kagoshima. One of the garden's most striking features is its use of Sakurajima and Kagoshima Bay as borrowed scenery. The garden also includes small ponds, streams, shrines and a bamboo grove.
13:15/17:00 pm: Tour ends at Kagoshima Chuo station. Please make your own way to your next destination.
