The Arimura Lava Observatory was built on top of the lava that flowed out from the Taisho eruption in 1914. While strolling along the 1km-long promenade, you can enjoy a panoramic view of Sakurajima and Kinko Bay. The cone-shaped silhouette is refreshing and attractive. At the Yunohira Observatory, located at the fourth station of Mount Kita (Kitadake), you can look down on the rugged surface of the mountain, Kinko Bay, and the cityscape of Kagoshima City, and feel the fierceness of the powerful nature.
