One goes to a volcano

A travel blog entry by dizzyseren on Aug 08, 2014

... trying to work out what I'm going to do when I get somewhere. The lady at information says to follow the tram tracks so I ignore this and follow the river. I go past some "birthplace of" people they are clearly proud of but I have no idea who they are. They've gone all out on tourist information even though there's very little to see. The river gets me no where so I admit defeat and ask for directions. He (and his wife) google maps it, goes on and on in Japanese before ...

... 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 ...

Also some good restored planes etc. (Kawasaki Ki-61 "Hien"; Nakajima Ki-84 "Hayate"; and of course a Zero)
One thing that was said was ...

The reason I came to Kagoshima was because it was described as laid back. Also there's an active volcano in the bay. I spend most of the day here I had walking. First I checked out the Senganen-en Gardens. The highlight here for me was the walk up the hill at the back. Then I headed back into town and made my way up Shiroyama Park which overlooks the city. After that it was down to the harbour for a beer while ...

Dampened But Not Down

... We walked through one of their very spartan barracks.There are large and small video screens featuring interviews with family members and support staff, even one with the restaurant owner. Unfortunately, almost everything is only in Japanese. There are audio guides in English, but our visit was too short for them to do much good.


As this was a Saturday, the museum was packed with Japanese taking it all in. The messages being reinforced seemed to be: The war was ...
