Situated on top of the shopping complex above Kagoshima Shinkansen station. Great views of the city and Sakurajima island.

Was fun and nice view. We were only there for the day so it was a great way to see the city from above for a low price.

500 Yen for a 15 min ride, right in the center of town. Probably the best 360 view available for miles. No ticket booth , just a coin machine dispensing tickets which you hand to the attendant outside.

I prefer jet coaster to Ferris wheel so this is my second ride on a Ferris wheel in my life. My tension was high enough to try it to my regret. There are two types of gondola to choose at the same fee of US$5....More

The Ferris wheel entrance is located on the top floor of the department store next to Kagoshima-Chuo. It's 500 yen per adult which is good value. The views are great over the city and across to Sakurajima. Well worth a trip if you have 15...More
