    The actress was performing skits in Cherry suizenji Kumamoto Castle is? Had been introduced in the closing words, so little interest have tried. Worth seen with Kato shrine in Kumamoto, higo founder feudal Lord Kato kiyomasa and enshrined here, I think. 300 stone steps to climb up from behind the building called the pure pond Temple which enshrines the kiyomasa tour meet statue of kiyomasa. Because the weather was picture but Kumamoto city is so of course overlooking the ASO mountain area height. I think that on sunny days also for revenge like you want to.

    It is a family Temple of the Kato House located in Kumamoto city. Honmyo-ji Temple, Temple of pure pond, kiyomasa statue is threefold. Kumamoto city views from where the statue of kiyomasa at the top. In addition, those who want to can climb in the car, so please. The nearest to the honmyo-ji Temple before the streetcar honmyo-ji Temple entrance or Kumamoto city bus. Honmyo-ji Temple to go aboard a tram from Kumamoto Castle, and quite devious. Kakihara community go (bottle 1) ride from Shiyakusho-Mae from Kumamoto Castle, and eliminating waste. Toward from the bus stop and tram stop, and first of all, looks big white Deva of the concrete. I think normally, said the NIO NIO-SAMA are part on the first floor is here on the second floor part enshrined. Distinctive building is part of the base is done in and cannot be managed. Deva to bypass the row of cherry trees along the approach continues, the each temple and also suffers from a stone walls and gravestones. Honmyo-ji Temple main hall doesn't seem especially broken, but had collapsed clock tower of the shrine. So was the cherry blossoms are in full bloom near the extra was more misery. The scars of the earthquake will be shown and the fallen Stone lanterns in the Middle too pure pond temple to breast protruding "gangi". So pure pond Temple damaged body had fallen lanterns on both sides of the stairs which follow the statue of a kiyomasa could not. Compared to that time have you visited in the past, so sad. And walking of Kumamoto, felt affected except for Kumamoto Castle in the leaves is a bit old and still remain. It is understand that compelled to procrastination is not directly relevant to this life, but want to reconstruction as soon as possible.

    I have been in Japan for a long time, so temples and shrines don't seem that unique anymore, but the Honmyoji temple complex is really nice. You can really get a feel for traditional Japanese temples here.

    1 year 2 months after the quake also still requires the time to recovery. But Kato kiyomasa's tombstone, climbing stairs is a good workout.

Where to stay in Kumamoto

By far the majority of the accommodations in Kumamoto lie to the east and south of the main park containing the castle. Ranging from budget guesthouses to luxury hotels, and even luxury guesthouses (traditional "ryokan," with onsite spas), the accommodations of this central district are spread fairly evenly between the park and Shirakawa River. Many visitors to Kumamoto opt to stay further to the west along one of the peninsulas that jut out into Shimabara Bay.
