Service Station “Sakurajima”
We visited the service station “Sakurajima”.
We took memorial photos before entering into the service station.
My 6 month daughter became a Sakurajima Komikan which is the small orange and the famous agricultural products at Sakurajima region.
Our daughter smiling at the camera is very cute.
Following picture is Sakurajima Radish. The size of the radish is the largest in the world according to the Guinness record.
If I put my face in the middle of the radish, it becomes a scary monster. 🙂
We entered the service station.
You can also have lunch at the restaurant of the station.
We found interesting pots made of volcanic stones of Mt. Sakurajima. They look very interesting!
The volcanic pots are popular among those who love gardening, because water is well drained in those pots.
The wooden ceiling has the unique shape.
You will feel as if you you are eating lunch inside volcano in the restaurant.
Many dishes are made of unique ingredients produced in Sakurajima.
The pepper is made of the skins of Sakurajima small oranges.
My wife ordered the following Hinoshima-Gozen (1,050 yen).
The pork is very soft and juicy!
Sakurajima orange juice has the mild taste.
I ordered the following the finest amber jack bowl (780 yen).
The fish is very fresh and delicious!
The architecture of the building made us feel as if we were inside the volcano.
Many travelers were enjoying shopping at the souvenir hall.
Many kinds of local agricultural products were sold there.
We bought some Sakurajima Komikan oranges.
One bag has more than 10 oranges but is only 150 yen! It is very cheap!
The oranges are smaller than usual, but very sweet.
Why not buy it as a souvenir or eat it on your driving trip in Kagoshima?
