  • Sakurajima

    Kagoshima Things to Do

    I think it's safe enough to say that Sakurajima is the no. 1 attraction in Kagoshima and suffice it to say that the 15-min ferry ride from the Sakurajima Ferry Terminal remains one of my highlights of my 7-month stay in Japan. It's awesome to witness its majesty from a distance and even more so when I edged closer and closer to the island.I didn't...

    Kagoshima Things to Do

    The Chiran Peace Museum is dedicated to the 1036 kamikaze pilots who sacrificed their lives by flying their bomb-laden planes into American ships. As such, this is not a visit for the faint-hearted but if you are curious to understand the frame of mind of these Japanese who knew that they did not have much longer to live, I would say this is a...

  • Deer!

    Ambo Off The Beaten Path

    While hiking in Yakusugiland, I kept getting exciting every time I'd catch a glimpse of a deer in the distance. Turns out I didn't need to be chasing those deer after all. When we got to the end of the trail, there was a deer right in front of me. Not only did he not run away, but when I took out a cracker, he happily ate it out of my hand.

    Ambo Off The Beaten Path

    Keep your eyes open for the wild Yakushima macaques. They could be anywhere, often hanging out in family groups. And they were amazingly unafraid of people and cars.

  • Bathing in Hirauchi-kaichu hot springs

    Ambo Things to Do

    We had never tried bathing in a Japanese hot spring, and after a cold day of hiking in the rain, that seemed like a fun way to relax and warm up. The setting was gorgeous--set in the rocks, next to a blue and gray rocky beach. There is a restaurant nearby with parking. There aren't any special faciliies for bathers, but the restaurant will sell you...

    This is the main ferry that takes passengers between Shibushi and Osaka. It is an overnighter with individual cabins fully equipped with basic amenities. It leaves Shibushi at 6pm and arrives into Osaka at 7:40am.

    My family had a bad experience with the rooms as the toilet smelled awful. The meals served were awful as well.
