It's the Kagoshima 鹿兒島 Day.

The boat docked at 7am. By 9am, we were in the bus ready to be the tourists…..The weather can’t be grimmer. By the time we arrived the noble residence 仙巖園 from the feudal time, it was raining cats and dogs. Cooped in the tour bus waiting out the rain, eventually ventured out. Glad that we packed a spare pair of socks. It’s a rainboots day!

The volcano Sakurajima is on an island in the harbour - much like Rangitoto. Although, it isn't an ...

After that it was down to the harbour for a beer while ...

... Rather than use them as an example of Japanese heroism, it emphasizes what a waste of life it was. As we approached the Peace Museum, our guide pointed out concrete lantern posts along the road. Each represented a dead young pilot whose life was thrown away by the military. She told how the young men had been befriended by a local woman restaurant owner. When they were about to leave on what they knew would be their final mission, they wrote letters to their families. Knowing ...

Meiji Restoration & Chiran Kamikaze Museums

A travel blog entry by rbfromnj

... Kagoshima to Chiran. So I took the train (Ibusuki-Makurazaki Line) from Kagoshima-Chuo to Kiire, and then a bus from Kiire to Chiran. At Kiire, the train station is three blocks from the bus stop. I asked the train station agent how to get the bus to Chiran, and he pointed to a poster on the wall of the train station that showed the route, along with photos of landmarks at the points when you have to make turns. There was a couple ...
