Kumamoto

Kumamoto ©
Centered around its castle, Kumamoto stands as a historic city with plenty of modern-day appeal to add to the mix.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Kumamoto Castle and Kato Shrine. You'll get in some beach time at Ashikita Seaside Comprehensive Park and Okoshiki Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Kumamoto: Ogi Rice Terraces (in Ubuyama-mura), Kuninomiyatsuko Shrine (in Aso) and Calm Nishime Swimming Beach (in Kamiamakusa). There's much more to do: take in breathtaking views at Takachiho Gorge, get engrossed in the history at Newspaper Museum, admire the natural beauty at Suizenji Jojuen Garden, and look for gifts at KUMAMON products Nagataniya.

Plan a trip to Kumamoto easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Tokyo ©
Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Senso-ji Temple and Edo-Tokyo Museum. You'll explore and learn at Tokyo National Museum and National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan. Venture out of the city with trips to Mitaka (Mitaka Yamamoto Yuzo Memorial Museum & Ghibli Museum Mitaka) and The Hakone Open-Air Museum (in Hakone-machi). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Ginza, ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace, make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, and stop by Asakusa.
