I jumped into one of the sushi restaurants within JR Kagoshima Station for dinner. My sushi experience was however a mixed affair. The Tamago Sushi and Chawanmushi tasted great. However, the Kagoshima Special sushi was just so-so. The salmon tasted fresh even though it was nothing to rave about.

After dinner, I wandered around the city and headed to the riverside to enjoy the cool breeze at night. This was my final evening in the city and I was determined to end my trip on a sweet note. With the giant ferris wheel right behind me, I hurried to one of the restaurants that served the Shirokuma. This was a shaved ice dessert topped with various fruits and condensed milk and made to shape like a bear. Very kawaii and certainly a nice ending for my trip to Kagoshima.

I would be heading back to Hakata for my final 2 nights in Japan. Before that, I would spend sometime in Kumamoto since it made an ideal stopover located mid-way between the 2 cities. Thank you Kagoshima and hope to see you soon again.
