Memorial Photo

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.

Souvenir Hall

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!

My Comment

The service station Sakurajima is close to Sakurajima Port.

You can have lunch here and it is the good place to take a rest when you enjoy car driving at Mt. Sakurajima.

There were some people parked their cars and stayed at its parking lot.

The station is the good starting point to travel around Mt. Sakurajima and Osumi Peninsula.
