We spent half a day visiting this place. We got in from the east driving and started off with the Buried Shrine. Then off to the walking path where we got a good look at the volcano spewing ash...a really cool site with ash littered all over.
The observatory some 373m high is a must see, including all the sights at the main tourist information counter.
Throughout the visit, there a many paranomic views of the surrounding and all of them are simply breathtaking.
We ended with a ferry (with the car) to Kagoshima, a short but enjoyable ride. Saves lots of time too and very useful for anyone planning to drive around Sakurajima.
