Kagoshima City View Bus – Enjoy Sightseeing at Kagoshima City –



Very convenient transportation for sightseeing main travel spots in Kagoshima City.


Kagoshima City View Bus

I have been born and raised in Kagoshima Prefecture, but it was my first time to board the Kagoshima City View Bus. I had thought that many seats of the bus would be vacant, but I found that the bus was full of local people and foreign tourists!

It was the middle of summer (the end of the July) and many childredn was on the bus to enjoy swimming at Iso Swimming Beach, which is the one of the destination of the bus.

Seats were desighned so that passengers can enjoying viewing outside. Seats of the rear side of the bus were removed so that passengers can stand there to enjoy seeing city view.

You can listen to the guide announce which explains the each main spot in various languages. I thought that I would never feel bored inside the bus.

The bus is popular among local people of Kagoshima city and tourists. I hope that many people will make use of it.
