Our cruise ship arrived Kagoshima port 21 Oct, 2018 at 1000, one hour late. Hashiguchi san, our driver of TR Taxi, waited patiently, picked us up and started our tour according to an itinerary pre-arranged via smooth discussion online between English-speaking coordinators of TR Taxi and me. We had a wonderful tour – the live volcano Mt. Ontake on Sakurajima, Kirishima Shrine, Shiroyama Park on the hill where we could see the entire Kagoshima city, and the historical Senganen Garden. Hashiguchi san, though non-English speaking, managed to persuade us to visit, beyond our itinerary, Sakamoto Kurozu, a famous black vinegre factory along the way, which we enjoyed very much. Upon our sudden request he took the trouble to get us to a specialty fruit shop for fresh Kaki’s, a fruit where Kogoshima is famous for. In the famous Furasao Yatai Village in downtown, we had for dinner excellent food of sashimi, sushi, shabu-shabu hot hot, and skewered barbecue washed down by Satsuma shochu & beer in 4 small restaurants of Izakaya. Oh boy, what a nice time we had. Thank you, Hashiguchi san & the coordinators who helped the pre-arrangement online. Anthony C.
