Ferris Wheel, Amuran

A large Ferris wheel with a diameter of approximately 60m and a maximum height of 91m, which is visually impressive because it is located on top of a building. From the Ferris wheel, you can see an amazing view of Sakurajima, the symbol of Kagoshima, right in front of you and a panoramic view of Kagoshima city. The rotation speed is set to 14 minutes and 30 seconds per revolution, and it rotates approximately 13 meters per minute. The speed is average, but the size of the Ferris wheel is large, so it can be said that the boarding time is relatively long.

This Ferris wheel has two "see-through gondolas" with transparent floors, ceilings, and even bench seats. If you don't mind heights, please come and experience the thrill at a height of approximately 91m.

Kagoshima Tour Reviews

Simply Brilliant!

Right from the outset Hitomi was a joy to deal with. She was responsive to our communications and interested in our needs on the day. Hitomi put together a perfect itinerary for us and was really fun to be with all day, providing a fascinating local perspective. We loved the ferry ride to Mount Sakurajima, its footbaths and observatory as well as the Sengam-en Feudal Lord villa. However the real highlight was lunch in an amazing restaurant cooking our wagyu beef on the integrated table barbecue. What an experience! We’d highly recommend Hitomi to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!!

Simon F.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I was the one who had the most fun during the tour. You people were so kind and sweet and so fun to be around and talk to. As expected, the best attraction was Bakuro's Wagyu Beef Yakiniku! Please come back to Kagoshima in the near future to find the best antique Satsuma ware. I wish you all the best!

Wonderful day in kagoshima

Hitomi was a wonderful guide! Unfortunately we didn’t have great weather but she certainly made the most of it and was very flexible to our schedule due to weather. She also took us to the best lunch we have had in Japan. Would absolutely recommend!

Lindsey M.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed Kagoshima and Wagyu beef yakiniku. I also enjoyed guiding you around Senganen Cat shrine. By now you are definitely having a great time with your beloved cat and dog. with many thanks.

Hidden Sakurajima

Due to circumstances the plan was changed but Hitomi was quick to adapt. As it was cloudy we could not see the top of Sakurajima but still learnt a lot at the visitor Center. The highlight though was the wagyu lunch as it pleased some tough critics. Hoping to come back again and hopefully see the full view of Sakurajima.

June lynn H.

Thank you for your tour review. I really like the title "Hidden Sakurajima'' and the phrase "some tough critics." I thought there was only one tough critic, but there were actually some! you are such a great writer. It was a shame that the weather and the cherry blossoms weren't in bloom yet, but I'm glad you enjoyed the Wagyu Yakiniku. Continue your wonderful cruise ship journey! Please come back to Kagoshima again! Also, please give my best wishes to each and every member of your family. .

Kagoshima is blessed with many volcanoes, a mild climate and a lot of rain. People have survived on barren volcanic ash plateaus. Currently, the agricultural production is the highest in Japan and marine resources are also abundant. Relatively close ancestors started the industrial revolution along with the social revolution for modernization in Japan. Western countries hailed this as an oriental miracle. Please enjoy the trip to find many of Kagoshima's secret keys.
