We'll be visiting Kagoshima on Mon 16 August on a cruise, ship docks at 11 and sails at 8pm. Ideally we would love to travel to Chiran to see the Samurai residences and the peace musuem dedicated to the Kamikaze pilots of WWII.
The information I have is that its a 90 min bus ride from Kagoshima but does anybody know if it would be possible to hire a taxi and driver for the return trip? Do you think its feasible to do this in the time allowed on should we stick to Kagoshima itself - Senagen gardens and Mount Saurajima sounds good as a second choice.
Any advice/information would be very welcome
