  • Located near Miyuki bridge is at the entrance of the Kumamoto Castle. Long eboshi and putting a distinctive, back to Kumamoto Castle is great. Kiyomasa world Castle and Kumamoto Castle fortification, and other many accomplishments, such as flood crest, Weirs and waterways, civil engineering. In the earthquake, was built. I will have been to defend Kumamoto.

  • A cruise that had stopped in the region of Kumamoto. Porto is approximately 50 minutes downtown Kumamoto. There's no bus or train we had to take taxi, approximate value of $100, 00dolares Americans. Worth every penny. Kato Kiyomassa statue is at the entrance of the Castle. Has that historical account that he was responsible for the construction of the Castle, just a few minutes walk. Without cost of ticket

  • Statue of the damyo Katō Kiyomasa
  • 政治的所在:熊本城與悲劇的加藤清正家 熊本城不是只有觀光,只有拜訪熊本熊這麼簡單而已。如果沒有熊本城,日本最後一次內戰的結果可能完全翻轉,你在電影《末代武士》裡看到的武士,也可能不再是「末代」。一起來了解熊本城的身世吧! 這位清正公,叫做加藤清正,是秀吉手下最忠心耿耿的一位。他是秀吉母親大政所姊妹的孩子,和秀吉算是有血緣關係,因此最受秀吉疼愛。 加藤清正從小到大,最被稱道的就是在戰場上表現勇猛。擊敗柴田勝家,取得天下的「賤岳之戰」中,他贏得「七本鎗」之一的美名。後來在侵韓戰爭中,清正在中、韓聯軍重重包圍下死守蔚山城,得到「鬼大將」的稱呼,還留下清正打虎的傳奇,可以說是秀吉軍的重臣。 秀吉對清正好,清正也投桃報李,對豐臣家忠心耿耿。滯韓期間,秀吉派出心腹石田三成前往戰場,觀察現場情況。一絲不苟的三成對戰場上亂七八糟的指揮調度很不滿意,回國後參了這些前線將軍好幾本,清正還被叫回日本閉門思過。 不過這段禁足期間,歌舞伎狂言〈地震加藤〉留有一段逸話。1596年發生伏見大地震,禁足中的清正不顧禁足令,一馬當先衝進伏見城,秀吉感其忠心,大大嘉獎清正。這段「地震加藤」算是家喻戶曉的故事,也突顯了清正忠勇奉公、不顧責難的個性。 不過這位忠心耿耿的清正,在關原之戰時,卻是站在德川家的東軍這一邊,而非以擁護秀賴為職志的西軍這邊。不只是清正,當時幾乎所有被稱作「尾張派」的早期豐臣家武將,都站在東軍這一邊,而西軍則以石田三成等人統一天下後,被稱作「近江派」的治理官僚為主。 會被分成「尾張」與「近江」兩派,當然和秀吉的治理需求有關。「尾張派」是秀吉馬上得天下的夥伴,「近江派」對於治理國家卻比較擅長,這是統治者在不同時代中必然的選擇。但中間的裂痕如果沒有彌補,衝突是遲早的事。 有志於天下的家康就是利用這種矛盾,拉攏秀吉的正室夫人北政所,以及以北政所意志馬首是瞻的「尾張派」將領,號稱不是要消滅豐臣家,而是為了清除石田三成這些圍繞在秀賴旁邊的「奸臣」。 關原之戰後,戰勝的德川家康自然而然成為天下人。他也大方地分封土地、俸祿給這些有戰功的諸侯。但清正最耿耿於懷的,還是家康怎麼處理秀賴的問題。為了保住秀賴,清正花了很多時間斡旋雙方,也因此讓家康心有芥蒂。 分封到肥後熊本的清正,屢次斡旋耗費太多心力,不久之後就病死。德川家也藉故發動幾次攻擊,逼得秀賴最後自殺。但幕府將軍的眼中釘加藤家還在,不久之後,藉故繼任者加藤忠廣管理無方,造成藩內政治混亂,以及密謀造反等嫌疑,將肥後轉封給細川家。這也是現今熊本城下明明有清正公像,但城邊的大宅邸卻是細川家宅邸的原因。 加藤家的故事,讓人再一次感受到武將也必須要擁有一定程度的政治能力。清正雖然勇武過人,但是面對時代的浪潮,戰場上以一擋百的精神顯然不夠。比起同樣與豐臣家、德川家等距往來的加賀藩前田家能夠保全完整、留有芳名,加藤家的悲劇突顯了武將要在時代裡生存,政治能力的高低,似乎比勇武更為重要。
  • It is the famous military commanders and local pride. Also for a photo of tourists.

  • Japanese invasions of Korea from 1592, when many North Korean was killing (massacre) Kato kiyomasa. The Japanese do not know what it would be like to feel like I wasn't good ~ ~ ~ the spirit statue. All of a sudden I was in a residential district near the National Museum, Kyoto mimizuka, this reminds me of the sad as well.

  • It is for the first time saw the statue of kiyomasa had several times been in Kumamoto Castle. Dignified appearance has taken command in the game I guess, cool. Also comes in when it came to the Kumamoto ❗

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.
