Kumamoto

— 2 nights
Centered around its castle, Kumamoto stands as a historic city with plenty of modern-day appeal to add to the mix.
Visit Aso Mizuki Meguri and Takahashi Inari Shrine for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Catholic Tetori Church and Sl Hitoyoshi. Explore Kumamoto's surroundings by going to Okoshiki Beach (in Uto), Kamishikimi Kumanoimasu Shrine (in Takamori-machi) and Heitate Shrine (in Yamato-cho). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kuninomiyatsuko Shrine, examine the collection at Aso Highland Museum Park, contemplate the long history of Yoshidajyo Gokenjyokumiba, and stop by KUMAMON products Nagataniya.
