One of Japan's most iconic structures, Kumamoto Castle dates back to the 15th century and draws flocks of visitors with its distinct architecture and scenic grounds. This castle was designed by a local warrior, who made it an effective defense fortification. While visiting the complex, you can roam the castle's stone walls and turrets, some of which survived unchanged for centuries, admire the imposing main keep, or pay a visit to the onsite museum, where you can view displays about the history and various reconstructions of the site's buildings. Boasting hundreds of plants, the grounds make an idea spot for viewing blossoming cherry trees.

Kumamoto Castle Reviews
まだ震災の爪痕が残っており、工事中だったり、中に入れなかったり。また本来の歩道の部分に亀裂が入っていて、通れなくなっていたり。風化させてはないけない、とよく言いますし、わたしもそう思っていましたが、わたしも気づかぬ人の1人になっていたのだと気付かされました。あのあとからも懸命に復興を続ける熊本の人達になにができるのか…目を覆いたくなっても、それでも必ずご自身の目でみてほしいです。 more »There are still traces of the earthquake, and they are under construction or can't get in. Moreover, there is a crack in the part of the original sidewalk, and it is not possible to pass. I often say that I should not weather it, and I thought so, but I realized that I had become one of those people who didn't even notice. What can the people of Kumamoto, who continue to rebuild hard after that, be able to do so? Even if you want to cover your eyes, i want you to look at it with your own eyes.
Het Kumamoto Castle staat al enige tijd in de steigers vanwege de restauratie werkzaamheden. Het kasteelmis daardoor gesloten voor publiek. more »The Kumamoto Castle has been in the scaffolding for some time because of its restoration work. The castle mass thereby closed for public.
Wish the castle will be renovated soon. So sad to see the rock, the debris of structures downs there. Even though the great of man-made castle is still there. Worth to spending time walking around the place.
Many parts of the castle was affected during an earthquake. They are currently restoring the castle. But still a very beautiful place!
