Shiroyama Observatory・Shiroyama promenade

"Shiroyama" is the hill whose altitude is 107m and located in the center of Kagoshima city. This name comes from the fact that the castle had been built on that mountain  once.


The 2km promenade roads to the observatory is filled with more than 600 species of plants. 

While there is in the city area, it is a treasure house of nature.


That observatory is very popular as the photo spot that can overlook the Mt.sakurajima and Kinko-bay for travelers.


Why don 't you take a walk there in the morning to see the sun rises up from behind of the Mt.Sakurajima.
