Use bus day pass or Kagoshima day or two day pass to visit several spots in Sakurajima Island. Short stops for an overview and than, later, pick where to stay longer.

You can get off at any stop and ride again to catch the next if you have time. If you do not have time, just keep on riding it for one hour to enjoy just short stop(5 -10 minutes depending on the place).

This bus provided a convenient way for tourists to travel around all the famous points in Sakurajima. The driver was nice and helpful. Really worthy to take this.
