How much is the transportation fee?

Kagoshima has some public transportation systems,
however they are quite far from Kagoshima marine port.
If you are a tourist of a cruise ship, I recommend you should take a taxi.
However if you have a budget, please freely let me know.
I will think it over with you which transportation system is the best for your trip day.
