  • Kumamoto Castle around the roped-off area. It's now seen Kato shrine from Kumamoto Castle seen from the nearest location. Main temporary work has begun, but reconstruction takes how many years?

  • Typical shrine. Good views of the Kumamoto Castle.

  • Kumamoto Castle is seen. Stone and sandbags are stacked too far toward the crumbling shrine is painful. Now visit the shrine inside is big sacred precincts around the shrine in the rain without an umbrella stopped rain. To the company in the back of body tenses.

  • The Castle seen from the nearest point is. For earthquake reconstruction work, we looked at the Castle from here for years is not allowed near the Castle. Enough to feel force of the splendid Castle in Kumamoto Castle. ★ wanted to put 5 to see the Castle and would interfere with vision panels and banners, ★ 4.

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.
