Walk to Observatory

I took the video of the road from parking lot to the observatory. Not only tourists but also many local people are here to enjoy exercise. It takes about 5 minutes from parking lot to observatory by foot.

You can have a wonderful view of Mt. Sakurajima at the top of observatory. If weather is fine, you can see Kirishima Mountains at north and Mt. Kaimon at south.


View of Sakurajima

I took the view of Mt. Sakurajima from Shiroyama observatory. My wife and I came here many times before we got married. One of my dreams is to take my daughter to this place and let her see this scenery.


Sakurajima Ash Ice Cream?

There is a small shop at the observatory. The shop was selling very unique ice cream which I had never seen…!
