I asked about bus times and location - but they didn't have any information or map available. They weren't very proactive - you need to know what you need to ask ! Not much of the information / brochures are available in english.

I used the tourist information center in the Chuo Station twice on a recent trip to Kagoshima. Both times, the service desk representatives were very helpful, in English, and got me to the places I needed to be.

Situated within the main station area. Very helpful staff and lots of information on local attractions. You can purchase the "Welcome Cute" day passes here that will allow you to travel on the tram network, Sakurajima ferry and some buses.

The people at the center speak English and are more than willing to answer your questions as well as offer useful information. They're suggested day pass for the tram, bus, and ferry saved a lot of money (foreigners only).
