Tourism & Travel
Japanese term or phrase: 壁立
I don't know what this is other than the fact that it is a tourist site in Kagoshima (Satsuma Sendai-Shi). Can anyone help me with this?

English translation:Kabedate (/ Hekiryu) Trek / Path [壁立遊歩道]
Explanation:
壁立遊歩道 (Kabedate / Hekiryu [the 2nd one is less likely]) -- the easy way out is to use Romaji...

It's the name of a path / trek for hiking. The first link below does mention it but does not seem to include it in the maps... (other nearby tourist attractions are labelled), probably because the path itself alone doesn't make for an attraction (but that's just a wild guess).

The Japanese sources are self-explanatory... there's no reason to assume the term refers to man-made structures. The most useful ref. is the first link which gives serveral maps showing the vicinity of the trek.

Please note that this site is on an outlying island belonging to Satsuma-Shidai, not in the built-up areas of Kagoshima (and definitely not the city).
