The last restaurant we ate for Kagoshima was Zabon Ramen. A cute diner-like interior, and the ramen was fulfilling and set at a good price. Last snacks. Here is a departing video of a clear view of the active volcano:
Sweet potato ice cream was a pleasant surprise while walking around Kagoshima. It was tucked to the side of a mall, and seemed to be popular among the locals. On the way there with the hotel shuttle. And then to sushi afterwards at Ichibashokudo Jonan . Fresh fish. The only downside was that there was a smoking section allowed, but the taste of the fish was fresh and at a great price.

The sky is always filled lightly or densely with clouds because of the steam emitting from the volcano. I was told the roofing was made in particular to protect against volcanic activity. I believe we ordered the happy smile pancake set. Such a happy whipped cream (caterpillar?)
