In southeastern Satsuma Peninsula, around 50km from Kagoshima, the hot-spring resort of Ibusuki is quiet, particularly in the low season, and more especially after dark. Ibusuki Station is located about 1km from the beachfront and most accommodation, but the few eateries are near the station. The station information desk has basic maps and can assist with directions and accommodations.
Wi-fi access is at Ibusuki Information Plaza. Rent bikes at Eki-Rent-a-Car (with/without JR ticket from ¥300/500), adjacent to Ibusuki Station.
