Reviewed December 20, 2012

There's this old man who doesnt speak english at all but really friendly and enthusiastic in sharing knowledge about Mt. Sakurajima. I learnt a lot and even took a picture with him!

Do visit the visitor centre - you can buy a few souvenirs as well!

“Interesting and Helpful”

Sakurajima Visitor Center located next to the Sakurajima ferry terminal, is a small museum where you can learn about Sakurajima.

It contains exhibits and explains the history and nature of the Volcano and Island.

The visitor centre outlines the history of Sakurajima, sightseeing information and disaster-prevention. There is a hi-vision theater and diorama.

“Missed the inside so I cannot give it a bad review. Closes at 5pm, sharp!”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

We just missed the center closing but really enjoyed the volcanic mineral water foot bath in the garden at the rear along the shore. Even if you just do that its worth it. Easy walk of 300m from ferry pier.
