  • It enshrined the higo clan, Kato kiyomasa. It is a delightfully nice views over the Stone lanterns in the Kumamoto earthquake quake, but where. The recommended time of cherry blossoms and the sunset location. See also the Kumamoto Castle.

  • Climb the stairs and main hall. It was still plenty of lantern in the middle that collapsed in the earthquake. From further talks and will cut out of kiyomasa.

  • 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.
