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! There's a spectacular view of the island and when you leave the park, I recommend... 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.

Yes, I love dinosaurs. Who doesn't? I took pictures of all the dinosaur statues. Besides that there isn't much going on here. There weren't even any people until we left. It's cute but not the best thing on Sakurajima.

In fact, it was a steep winding uphill path, and much more difficult to walk after rain with autumn leaves covering the road. It was a picnic park with 7 large scale dinosaur models and giant slide of 12.5m tall and 50m long.... More

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 the earliest opening facilities on the island. So if you find yourself at Sakurajima a... More
