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 .

My travel partner also loves eel aside from dango, and so our next restaurant of course specializes in eel: Satsuma Jokiya Kagashi Yokocho.

My travel companion loves dango- so much so that she once flew to Japan from S. Korea just to eat it. I've never heard of a more baller move since then.

The first restaurant we tried as we arrived in Kagoshima was Kawakyu as Kagoshima is known for its kurobuta (black pork).

Kawakyu serves a variety of dishes that center around donkatsu, and although it is more mainly known for its roast katsu type I went for a katsu-don...

I had been given the opportunity to go to Kagoshima with a dear and lovely friend of mine, and although I was not a stranger to trips to Japan, it had been exciting and a delight nonetheless because of the company and sights.

One must always check out Lawson when possib...

Ironically despite I being the U.S. citizen and my father being the Korean citizen it is he who loves and at times craves hamburgers viciously at times.

There is a burger chain called: Brooklyn The Burger Joint scattered around Seoul which is a tad expensive compared to...

There's a really nice croissant place located in Bukchon along the road of Gye-Dong: Artisan Croissant. Gye-Dong, itself, is a fun and charming street filled with small shops, cafes and restaurants- a lot similar to how Garosu-gil was in the early years of its populari...
