This is really a small international airport and has limited service hours, check before you go there, only one small kiosk with limited offers and all by microwave. So, suggest you to eat before you go to the airport.

A very small airport. Duty free is about the size of a 7/11. The international side can only handle 1 flt at a time with only 2 or 3 flts daily.

3F of domestic terminal. It's fun to watch landings and takeoffs. Even if Kagoshima Airport is not big, departure and arrival occur very often. 5~20 min until having next plane. Sora Stage is near the entrance and good to visit together.

Many airports in Japan offer observation desk on the airport. Since Kagoshima Airport is not a big airport, not many kinds of plane that tourists can see here. Still a good facility for tourists
