  • Clean and perfectly organized as in Japan, worth a visit. Best way is to rent a car, the transfer by ferry is convenient and the ride is scenic  more »
  • I really want to go there again!! 想像以上の迫力でした!展示所が3ヵ所くらいあって、ぐるっと一周歩けます。 片側には桜島、片側には広大な海の景色! 桜島に行ったならぜひ!!  more »

  • Able to get up close with Sukurajima. Many viewpoints to look at the volcano, however don't expect to see any lava. Very ash laden, but pathways are still extremely clean. Expect to get a little sooty if volcano is especially active. Able to be accessed via a 20 min bus ride (¥740 return trip). The bus leaves from the bus stop closest to the port ferry, not the bus stop closer to the information centre. Hard hats are available at the observatory point should you need to evacuate (which is nice I guess but slightly unnerving). There is a detached information building near the observatory with some information about the volcano, and several small market stalls selling various small related things.
  • Great view of the mainstay of the island, as long as there are clear skies. Saw people scooping up the volcanic soil (souvenir?).
