平川動物園内にあるレストランです.
値段もリーズナブルでおいしく,時間の節約にもちょうどよい休憩にもなりました.

なんでも1000円以下、のような食堂です。うどんを食べました。定食もあったようです。ちょっと休憩するにはよい食堂です。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
