Close to the ferry terminal (about 20 minutes walking time) there is the Sakurajima Dinosaur Park. But a word of warning is in place here. The walk up and down the hill where the park is located is really very steep and not very save...More

Be prepared to climb the steep slope for 15 mins before reaching the park. It was a bright sunny day when we arrived and realised we are the only family up there! The long slides were the most fun for the kids. Spent about 30...More

Was looking for some big park for my gals to play, this one even wasn’t with lots of “ride”, but the huge park with some unique dinosaurs and rides made them enjoy soooo much. Some people even bring food to do the picnic and lunch...More

playground for children featuring many dinosaurs. You can walk there from the ferry terminal but climbing up is a little bit tough. I enjyoyed a slider before kindergarten children arrived

While on Sakurajima island, do drop by this one of it's kind park, if you fancy seeing a 'T-Rex' with a volcano backdrop. It's great for kids, but fun for adults as well as it brought back childhood nostalgia of dinosaurs.

Yes, I love dinosaurs. Who doesn't? I took pictures of all the dinosaur statues. Besides that there isn't much going on here. There weren't even any people until we left. It's cute but not the best thing on Sakurajima.

The information centre at the Wharf told us it’s a short walk of 10min towards the park. In fact, it was a steep winding uphill path, and much more difficult to walk after rain with autumn leaves covering the road. It was a picnic park...More

great place to be a kid again. climb on under and into dinosaurs. a short uphill walk from the ferry port, but well worth it. It is especially great if you have extra time while waiting for the next ferry.

How often do you get to see dinosaurs on a volcano? This park is a must see at Sakurajima. It is walking distance away from the ferry terminal. But there is an uphill to climb unless you hire a taxi. The park is one of...More
