Worth getting a day pass which allows unlimited rides. Convenient as it stops at the major sites without the hassle of figuring out directions and bus stops if taking public transport.

Definitely worth it to get a day pass which is only Yen 600 or 900. You get to stop at all the major sites and can hop on or off anytime. Great way to see the city and its sites.

You can buy a one day pass and hop on and off whenever you want. There are a couple of different circuits and you can do both. It is a great way to see all the tourist attractions in the city.

Get a day or two day pass to tour around serveral attraction in Kagoshima City. The only drawback is the operation hour to visit more than 3 spots. If you have time, get two day pass.

Both buses, city and shore are must see. You can get off and see the attraction and then get the next bus an hour later.

I had problems hearing what was being said on the bus, so the commentary did not help. The electronic destination signage was not working either. The other annoying thing was the bus schedule we had been given gave the wrong numbers for the stops. As...More

Bus drivers are very professional, they wait until you are seated before moving off. As all transport is in Japan, extremely clean and efficient! Maybe Australia could learn from this. Thank you for your great transport.
