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

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).

This bus provided a convenient way for tourists to travel around all the famous points in Sakurajima. The driver was nice and helpful. Really worthy to take this.

It takes almost 50min but the route is not very large. It's good to see the most important spots but if you like a bigger route you have to take another bus.
