  • There are a lot of shops of tea, horse meat, and other B-class gourmet specialties mainly in food. The salad Chikuwa and matcha ice cream with potesala in chikuwa were delicious. The restaurant system is around 11 o'clock, so it seems that there are more options if you go for lunch rather than breakfast.

  • I stopped by after my grandson Shichigosan's celebration. It was a very good place to learn about the history of Kumamoto Castle, full of food, souvenirs, museums, and so on. Because it was not so wide, both my grandchildren and Jijibaba were able to enjoy it slowly without getting tired.

  • So many local food shops and restaurants. most of shops accepts credit card. i really liked the soy shop which the soy milk was really good and the tofu with Miso which is like cheese but much more healthy was also wonderful. most of the shops allow you to try the food but they won't force you to buy it and they are so friendly!!
  • It was quiet when we arrived. We felt that the closed Kumamoto Castle beside has affected its business there. There are still a lot of shops open for business but it is a place that you can complete in 30minutes if you do not dine there.
