Easy to get to on tram from the train statiion. Tram stop less than a block away from hotel. No surprises at check in and efficient Japanese sized room. Nice linens and we told them our preferences regarding housekeeping through the television menu. Breakfast choices were plentiful with offerings for both Japanese and Western tastes. We enjoyed the Japanese offerings, especially the smoked salmon and mackerel and a variety of salads. Because the hotel is new, facilities are in great shape. Easy to get to / from train station and they provided a shuttle bus back to the station. Nice grocery store only a block away.
Even though it is a bit out of town access to the centre of the city was only a bus trip away. Due to the biggest eruption by Sakurajima since 2006 the whole city was covered in volcanic ash. I have been to Kagoshima several times and it is the first time I have seen it in this condition. Considering the amount of ash on the ground and still being expelled by Sakurajima the cleanliness of the room was outstanding. Unfortunately the hotel's onsen was out of commission due to the amount of ash that had fallen. Waking up in the early morning and opening the curtain to the view of Kinko Bay and Sakurajima was a truly enjoyable way to start the day.
The perfect hotel..perfect location ....perfect front desk staff with a smile....15 to 20 min...walk from the train station...walking distance to mt Sakurajima ferry...restaurant and coffee shop front of the hotel...morden style room...make sure you stay in this hotel.....
