TravelPod Member ReviewsStation Hotel Hayato Kirishima
Caught this hotel with a good rate (4000 Y for a single) on Rakuten. It's about 15 minutes (2 trains stops) from Kirishima Jingu, the access point for buses to Kirishima Natinoal Park hiking. I was very pleasantly surprised at the facilities. On the outside, it's concrete and non-descript. Insides, it's clean, simple and straightforward but with all the amenities you'd want: air conditioning, an en suite bath with tub, double bed, internet connection (bring your own cord), electric kettle with tea bags, mini fridge, TV, yukata, microwave in the hall to heat up bentos. All good here.

... see more! First stop is the lookout to see the volcano up close. There are parts of the volcano that are still active and so we are advised to keep an eye on it at all times. The haze clears momentarily so we get to see its rugged beauty. Our guide for this trip only speaks Japanese so she has booklets that she has prepared with the explanation of the main things we will see. The drive is very interesting. The roads are extremely narrow. Due to the rich volcanic soil there ...
I have no plan but I've had a lovely sleep in my lovely little room and wake up quite late. My washing has dried thanks to the amazing person who pulled it in from the rain. So I have clean clothes!! Quite frankly they were so gross I wouldn't speak to me if I had the choice. My only plan is to walk to the train station and catch the first train I can use my pass on. This is kashishma . I know there's a volcano there. The trip down is nice, I love the Shinkansen. I should ...
... a some food and a few beers and met two local Japanese girls who showed us round the night-life and took us to some traditional Japanese bars where we ate Japanese BBQ and drank Sake which was pretty cool!
If you're in Southern Kyushu go and spend a couple of days in Kagoshima and visit Mt. Sakurajima. Kagoshima also has a really good looking aquarium with Dolphin shows, which I sadly never got to see.
... even in American standard. Got my cap @ Sports Authority, and goggles @ another department store. Supermarket was our favorite! Very entertaining just browsing the variety of sashimi, sushi, bentos, let alone all various cooked food. Not expensive at all, especially with the quality of food.
Alex and I shared a sashimi box, and he had 2 skewers of chicken and 1 skewer of pork all by himself. I believe he’s going to pass the cruise ...
... that died ( of course a kamikaze pilot dies) about 12 were of Korean origin.
I guess therefore that Japan achieved its aim. No country in SE Asia is a colony of those countries anymore. Would this have been the situation if there had been no WWII?
And then it was time for my last rail pass ride - to Nagasaki.
I spoke to the weather god and he stopped the rain. Its back to 30+ and high humidity but sunshine. ( I'm keeping my distance from the rice farmers ...
