Shiroyama ("Castle Mountain") is a 107-meter hill located in the center of Kagoshima city. Its name comes from the fact that
it was once the site of a castle.
The 2-kilometer promenade to the observatory is filled with more than 600 species of plants.
Though located in an urban area, it is a treasure trove of nature populated by many birds and insects.
The observatory located at the end of the promenade is a magnificent photo spot overlooking Mt. Sakurajima and Kinko Bay.
