The Shiroyama is on a hilltop somewhat outside of the center city, and located in what appears to be its own park, so there are few outside things within strolling distance. There are several fine restaurants (we can rave about the Tempura bar) but it is worthwhile making reservations in advance, since they tend to get fully booked during popular... More

It's located on the hillside of the city of Kagoshima, a city on the almost southern tip of Kyushu Island, a southern most major islands of Japanese archipelago. It has everything you expect from any city hotels, yet the beauty of this hotel is its hot spring open air bath with spectacular view of Sakurajima, an active volcano which erupt... More

Variety of restaurants within hotel - very good. Good for guests with their own car. Did not try out the free shuttle service to town. Good spread of breakfast. Well maintained. The tempura counter was excellent. Our first choice was the teppanyaki but it was fully booked.

This was a great place to stay when visiting Kagoshima. The highlight is the great views - down over the city and straight across the bay to the Sakurajima volcano. You get pretty much the same (spectacular) view from the reception area, the gardens outside, or the onsen, as well as some of the rooms (if you get a city... More

Stayed for one night during the golden week holidays of Japan since I visited here on business about one year ago. Due to the high season, hotel cost was more expensive than that of my first stay, but could relax and enjoy the scenery from my room. Just there, run into the wedding ceremony in the hotel yard and saw... More
