on the day I visit, the weather is not that good. it was raining. Also frog as well so the view is not clear. however I believe the view from there to the whole Kagoshima should be very good.

This is the Kagoshima equivalent of the view in Naples from S.Elmo or Posillipo. Best place for a picture of the city with the Sakurajima in the background

Yunohira Lookout is the closest you can get to Sakurajima itself. If you take the sightseeing bus, you will stop at the lookout for about 15 mins which is just enough time for taking photos etc. When we went, we had a lovely bus driver...More

The bus will stop here for 15-20 mins, so everyone could go up to the observatory and have look at Sakurajima and Kagoshima city on another side. It'd be more beautiful if I went there on a clear sky day, anyway, it's still fantastic.

This place offers a top of the world experience. You need to pray for good wind direction so that the ashes from the volcano is not blowing towards you! Else you will be shrouded with ashes and no view!
