Part of the excitement is taking the ferry and going to Sakurajima. There are signs pointing you to the dinosaur park. It's a bit of a trek by foot but once you get there, it's worth it. Greeting you as you enter are huge dinosaurs!...More

While on Sakurajima island, do drop by this one of it's kind park, if you fancy seeing a 'T-Rex' with a volcano backdrop. It's great for kids, but fun for adults as well as it brought back childhood nostalgia of dinosaurs.

great place to be a kid again. climb on under and into dinosaurs. a short uphill walk from the ferry port, but well worth it. It is especially great if you have extra time while waiting for the next ferry.

How often do you get to see dinosaurs on a volcano? This park is a must see at Sakurajima. It is walking distance away from the ferry terminal. But there is an uphill to climb unless you hire a taxi. The park is one of...More
