Station Hotel Hayato
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.

We felt very privileged and were treated very well in the ryokans, I'll miss Japan.
We also enjoyed the 7 samurai home village, with bonsai and the intriguing kanakasi airplane fighters museum with photos of all of them. They looked so young and an old man giving a talk about it, still a lot of interest, after all these decades. No photos allowed.
... the SL Yamaguchi-go and left Tsuwano by 3.48pm. We got back to Shin-Yamaguchi station by 5.30pm to relieve Takako of her luggage sitting duties. We had to buy some dinner for the train ride to Kagoshima at the southern tip of Kyushu island. There wasn't much around the station as far as food was concerned. Joseph settled for a sandwich and a dessert whereas I had a bento box of rice, salmon, pork pattie, some pickles and a small pork ...
... still warm and little wind
Next day we had half a day before leaving Kagoshima, this is one of our favourite cities since amongst other things it has a good tram system, also some great arcades and the port area great views of the volcano Sakurajima, this is about 20 min ferry ride away many people live there and it is still active - a bit like Mt Etna I suppose.
We arrived at Hakata for a two ...
... lot of agriculture on the island and it's famous in Japan for giant turnips and mandarins amongst other vegetables. We have a couple of stops but where there is a photo opportunity the bus driver stops or slows down so we can get photos. The last stop is a lava park. It's quite incredible. The view of the volcano front here is spectacular and it appears quite active today as there are quite a few little explosions while we are there . Due to the heat and the falling ash in ...
