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.

Hailing from the tropics, Budokan is fortunate to reside in Singapore where jetsetting around have become very affordable. His greatest passion lies in cultivating his lifetime career of travelling, blogging and tour guiding.
