Sakurajima view from Shiroyama Observatory

From the height of Shiroyama Observatory, only 107 meters above sea level, the Sakurajima volcano, which is about 11 kilometers from the observatory, seems to be rising from the ocean right in front of you.

This is the best place to admire (and photograph) this symbolic mountain, because on a fair weather day it can be admired from here in all its majestic beauty.
