“Go to the second level for views of the volcano.”
Review of Dolphin Port

Dolphin Port
Ranked #3 of 44 Shopping in Kagoshima
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 June 2018

We were at Dolphin Port in the late afternoon on a weekday. It was not busy, but neither was Amu Plaza.

We spent most of our visit shopping at two stores situated to the left as you face the water. The first one specializes in edible gifts and souvenirs. The local specialties are the tiny mandarin oranges and a cold dessert that resembles a polar bear face. All the tour buses probably stop here because there are public restrooms inside. There is another shop further down selling souvenirs, local crafts, figurines and t-shirts featuring the cute male figure in a yakuta with the thick eyebrows.

Most of the restaurants on the second level were closed but you can get good views of the volcano. Elevators are situated by the main entrance in the center of the complex.

There is a free public footbath here. Bring your own towel.

Outdoors, be careful about what you touch and where you sit. The wind carries a lot of the ash that is frequently emitted by the volcano.

Public restrooms are also available on the ground level, on the far left of the complex as you face the water.

A bit quiet at the night we visited. Not many restaurants to choose from, and we ended up with simple dinner sets

We dropped at here before we got on
the jetfoil to Yakushima for lunch.
Here you can have any Kagoshima specialties from Tonkatsu to Seafood.

This is a great place for an ice cream and relax on the second floor. The view of Sakurajima is breathtaking as well as the bay and the many boats.

Went there before 4 pm and were lucky to find the "Bikuri-donkey" and ramen shop only open. All the other restaurants were closed from 15:00-17:30 on a Monday afternoon. We soaked our feet in the hotspring and enjoyed a milk-softcream outside overlooking the Sakurajima volcano.
