Today started with a train ride south to Kagoshima. This is the location where Erika's biological father lives. After reviewing the wind forecast and looking at the area via google satellite view, I thought we should have gone here yesterday. Well, we got here today.

Our hotel was easy to find, literally across the street from the train station so we got checked in and situated pretty quickly. As we had acquired some information about a beach near our hotel that might be sailable ...

... at the face of the volcano and the ash that's everywhere doesn't seem to affect people as they live in it daily, on stopping at a viewpoint and views of lava formed rocks the Aussie chap said wouldn't it be good if it erupted now? Well ten minutes later it did, we had a really good view as again it sent plumes of black ash and smoke high in the air, quite a sight when your close up, how the locals put up with it I don't know? Everything is caked in this ...

Smouldering Volcano on island

... tram.
A lot of the slower trains (or local trains) often mean a couple of transfers on route, and it is a pain to have to go up and down stairs with the backpacks, although most stations do have elevators.
To date, we have found any bus trip longer than three hours has a comfort stop within two hours. The bus often stops where there is food available, as well as the lovely heated-seat loos.
Once you get the hang of how to buy the bus tickets, and ...
