Kumamoto

3.6
Centered around its castle, Kumamoto stands as a historic city with plenty of modern-day appeal to add to the mix. The castle steals visitors' attention at the start of many visits to Kumamoto, though the surrounding streets of restaurants, stores, and museums soon provide a touch of the city's pleasant modern ambiance. Day trips throughout the surrounding region offer chances to see volcanic areas with hot springs and crater lakes, as well as an archipelago of 120 islands off the coast. Kumamoto is in Kumamoto Prefecture. With our world travel planner, Japan vacations can be built around trips to Kumamoto and other destinations in Japan.
