AMU plaza is connected to the Central Train Station, making it extremely convenient n tempting to stop over for a few hours. There are fashions n other accessories. Must mention is the top floor restaurants. I never expect restaurants in a shopping mall can be so good. On a rainy day, after a long bus ride from Ibusuki (the bus... More

AMU Plaza adjacent to Kagoshima-Chuo is the one stop solution to dining, shopping, and entertainment needs. Good selection of restaurants and a supermarket in the basement. Good place to hang out while waiting for your train.

First time visited this plaza in view of its proximity to hotel and spacious outlook with a pretty modern design. Mainly local designers' clothing covering wide varieties of preference and style. Young girls with a tight budget may find this plaza worth a look and search your own favourites with some original design. But restaurants in the top was surprisingly... More

Conveniently located beside JR Kagoshima Chuo Station, Amu Plaza is a big shopping mall for both travelers and local people. You can enjoy last minute shopping before taking Shinkansen. There are also some restaurants inside.

I've been to Amu Plaza many times and I think everyone that comes to Kagoshima city will see it at least once. In terms of malls, I prefer Aeon Mall, Kagoshima because it has a lot more stores and some of the same stores that Amu has, are bigger in Aeon Mall. But who can deny the Ferris wheel and... More

One could be anywhere in the world in this mall with its stereotypical shops and sales assistants. Nothing special except the relatively high ptices

Amu Plaza has many stores and restaurants, as well as a foreign foods market (Kaldi, basement level), an upscale secondhand boutique (Grapefruit Moon, 2F), and a cinema and ferris wheel (top floor). There are weekly events held out front, which often include live music and specialty foods. TIP: Try to avoid Amu on the weekends, as it gets very crowded... More

Went on the ferris wheel at AMU plaza in Kagoshima. It's special since it's on top of a building. Also for only ¥500,it gives you a good view of the city. I would go during sunset.

Our hotel was just across from the JR station. In fact, our room looked out at the Ferris Wheel atop the Plaza. It was interesting to watch the display of lights change color in the evening. Amu Plaza with its host of restaurants and shops was a perfect place to find dinner and snacks. A department store with the typical... More
