Eye-opening for those with little volcano knowledge. Taking a short ride on ferry to the Island is also refreshing.

Seems like the obvious thing to do on Sakurajima, recognizable system, good route, ample time at really good lookout spots to either take pics or simply enjoy the gorgeous and stupendous views over Kinka bay and the wild, rocky slopes of the Vulcano. Unfortunately in...More

Use bus day pass or Kagoshima day or two day pass to visit several spots in Sakurajima Island. Short stops for an overview and than, later, pick where to stay longer.

I took this tour in May 2017. I was there late, in the day and I guess the bus pictured in the advertisement wasn't available. Instead they've put there a rickety city bus. That was disappointing. Look at my photos. The trip near volcano is...More

If your low on time and or money this is for you. Beware, it can be crowded and rushed. They do provide additional buses when needed.

You can get off at any stop and ride again to catch the next if you have time. If you do not have time, just keep on riding it for one hour to enjoy just short stop(5 -10 minutes depending on the place).

The bus was overcrowded. It was hard to see from the seats. Some tourists had to stand. We were afraid of losing our seats so did not get off at all viewpoints.
