Centered around its castle, Kumamoto stands as a historic city with plenty of modern-day appeal to add to the mix.
Venture out of the city with trips to Josenji Temple (in Gokase-cho), Taketa (Kuju Flower Park, Thermal Spas, &more) and Takachiho-cho (Takachiho Shrine, Takachiho Gorge, &more). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Suizenji Jojuen Garden, step into the grandiose world of Kumamoto Castle, get great views at Kokonoe Yume Otsurihashi Bridge, and admire the masterpieces at Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto.
