How far to walk from Cruise Ship terminal to Dolphin Port to catch City View Tourist Bus.
It seems that most international cruise ships berth at "Marine Port Kagoshima" in the newly created island in the southern area of the city, whereas "Dolphin Port" is located at the northern area of the city.
You may look at the location on Google Map, by copy-and-pasting the Japanese.
Marine Port Kagoshima: マリンポートかごしま
Dolphin Port: ドルフィン・ポート
It is not a walking distance (8-10km?). I imagine that there would be bus / taxi options to central parts of town and for Sakurajima volcano.
This would be helpful:
Find out which port your ship is going to use first. Like Yobeekool said, most international ships use the Marine Port, but a few use the Kita-Futo, which is an easy walking distance from Dolphin Port.
