The bus departure stop is right down the ferry terminal on the island. U won't miss it. The bus runs along one side of the island n takes about an hour with about 8 stops. The driver will wait for 5-10 min in 3 vista points so that u can take photos n come back to continue the ride. U can also hop on n off in all the stops. Just that the bus is usually departs once every hour from the terminal (when tourists are really many, the interval may shorten), so make sure u check the time for next coming bus when u get off the bus.

We got off in the second stop which is the hotel in the island. There is also a waterfront park n we had a really nice walk along it. The best is there is a free fee bath there, it's very nice to soak your feet n relax n enjoy the view of the volcano from the far side.

I recommend this bus ride if u don't drive or u are going to spend a whole day in the island.

We went on a Wednesday morning in November and really enjoyed the ride, the view, and the three short stops. Personnel at starting point went out of their way to insure visitors got on correct bus. Driver was well organized and posted departure time during the stops. The bus with 12 passengers was over half full. On a weekend or during summer afternoon one can imagine it could be packed. Afterward we walked from Ferry Terminal to Dinosaur Park and to the Welcome center.

You can get off at any stop and ride again to catch the next if you have time.
If you do not have time, just keep on riding it for one hour to enjoy just short stop(5 -10 minutes depending on the place).

The bus was overcrowded. It was hard to see from the seats. Some tourists had to stand. We were afraid of losing our seats so did not get off at all viewpoints.

This bus provided a convenient way for tourists to travel around all the famous points in Sakurajima. The driver was nice and helpful. Really worthy to take this.
