最上階展望台から下の階に向かいながら鑑賞して良かったです。どこからともなく聞こえてきた島唄は、スタッフの生演奏で驚きました。
Reviewed:2019/07/11 展望台と資料館
高い丘の上にあります。入場料400円の資料館です。
5階建てで、1番上が屋内展望エリアになっていて360°周囲を見渡せます。
資料館は与論島の海のことや文化についての展示がありますが、そこまで面白いものはありませんでした。

          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.
