Sakura Island is surrounded by the sea on three sides and connected with Wudao on one side. Sakura Island is most famous for its active volcano, which is as famous as Mount Fuji. From Kagoshima Port, you can take a ferry to Sakura Island free of charge with a well cut ticket. At the same time, you can also take a bus on land free of charge. Most noteworthy is that every day at 11:05 there is a boat around Sakura Island, so that you can fully feel the charm of Sakura Island, in 50 minutes, return can take 15 minutes by ordinary ferry. Every time the bus arrives at a famous scenic spot on the island, it will stay for about 10 minutes, and Tang Zhiping will stay for 15 minutes, which is basically enough for you to see all kinds of beautiful scenery. In the future, you can also ride around the island by bicycle, which takes about nine hours.
I have always been fond of volcanoes in Japan. I would like to have a look at them. On this cruise trip to Kagoshima, we first saw the famous Cherry Island volcano. As we all know, Cherry Island volcano is an active volcano. In fact, it is always active and erupting. So when you walk near the Kagoshima volcano, you will feel a burst of ash, and from time to time there will be a burning smell. Recent news, I learned that the Cherry Island volcano erupted in the afternoon of May 1, 2016, and the ash ejection height reached 4100 meters at most. Fortunately, the eruption did not cause casualties and other losses. We were very unlucky when we went there that day. It rained in Kagoshima, so unfortunately we didn't really see the volcano very clearly. There are ditches near the volcano. They are famous volcanic hot springs. Everyone can put their feet in and experience them. They are hot and comfortable. Generally speaking, the Sakura Island volcano is still very beautiful. I hope I can have a chance to see the beautiful Fuji Mountain in the future.
It's only 160 kilometres by boat from the Aquarium to Sakura Island, and there are 24-hour crews. When we get to Cherry Island, we must go to Tang Zhiping Prospecting Platform, which is the best scenic spot to see the volcano, and also have a bird's eye view of the city of Kagoshima and the sea. It's really beautiful. There is also a park near Cherry Blossom Harbor where you can soak your feet. It's a good place to relax your tired legs and relax.
Cherry Island Harbour front rental bicycle ride, but summer is too hot, it took almost four hours to complete the ride and no attractions carefully. The volcano erupted spectacularly as soon as it left. There are several sightseeing buses to Cherry Island. The specific strategies can be seen clearly in my travel notes. There is also a free volcano museum that must be visited. The feeling here is similar to the life of a small fishing village. There are a lot of people who don't even ride a bicycle on the road, but they are all professional suits. The only downside is that there are few public facilities in places where tourists don't go very often. There are few toilet convenience stores and vending machines are often sold out. The suggestion is to travel by sightseeing bus at least to save time and effort, but powerful people can try to rent bicycles, 300 yen an hour is also acceptable.
Take a bus from the aquarium to the island without buying a ticket. When you get off the boat, you pay 160 Japanese yen per person at Sakura Island. After boarding the island, there are sightseeing buses around the island. There are hot springs hotels on the island, beside which there are parks (for fees) and free foot baths. Walking is enough. Recommend a supermarket on the island, which sells green tea limited by Kagoshima (the purpose of second landing). Rosen can buy the Arctic Ocean version of Kagoshima beside it. If the weather is good, Rosen can see the crater outside. When you return, you need to put in coins and board the ship. It takes about 15 minutes to get home on time.
Kagoshima one-day ticket, take a ferry to Sakura Island. Take a sightseeing bus to visit the volcanic eruption of Cherry Island. There is an open-air hot spring foot bath on the side of the dock, facing the sea. It's a pleasant feeling. It also hit the Cherry Island volcano that erupted four days ago...
This time, we took a cruise ship, stopped at Kagoshima, took a bus to Chai Island. The time was a little short, an hour was a little short. We saw the foot soup corridor, the remaining volcanic ash and black rocks on the island. When we got back to the ship, we just saw the scene of volcanic eruption. It was very shocking, and we had a chance to swim in depth.
Sakura Island is a volcanic island, which is still very active. If you are lucky to meet volcanic eruption, the scene is very spectacular, which is also the place that Kagoshima must go to. There are 20 kinds of boats at Cherry Island Pier. There are circular sightseeing buses on the island to serve all scenic spots. Each scenic spot stops for visitors to take photos. The scenic spots on Sakura Island are basically free. The lava foot bath park has Japan's largest and longest foot bath. The hot spring water can fade away exhaustion. At Tang Zhiping Prospect Center, the scent of sulfur can be breathed in close proximity to feel the dormancy of the volcano. It was the cherry blossom season when we went, just like the name of Cherry Island: Cherry blossoms are brilliant. It's definitely worth going.
The most famous tourist attractions in Kagoshima are convenient to go by ferry. Fifteen minutes a day is a good time to buy a package ticket. Buses around Sakura Island travel one hour a time. There are several stops that stop immediately and don't get off at random. Otherwise, they have to wait for an hour. Large scenic spots will stop for tourists to take pictures and pay attention to the introduction of the station. The scenery is good. It's worth seeing.
