As said this goes all around the center of Kagoshima and then off to the water. for 170 Yen you can get within walking distance of almost anything in the city, great way to get around if you can't afford to cab.

Easy and fast to use. Board at the back or middle and pay and leave via the front. Change machines for notes was really useful. Bonus to find main stops announced in english as well.
