  • Goshuin is the red stamp / Calligraphy done on a special Japanese stamp book The price is 300 yen and you can also pray Please read on the Internet while there I spent about 10 mins here  more »
  • This shrine is quite a walk from the tram station but it's worth a visit for a nearer view of Kumamoto castle.  more »
  • nice shrine near the castle with decent views. be cautious as you have to walk up a super steep incline. if you do goshuincho, this place has them!
  • A beautiful shrine near the Kumamoto Castle, Under construction due to earthquake. I will visit again to this temple with my child.
  • A nice shrine which can also view the kumamoto castle closely.
  • An important castle, whose walls withstood the earthquake of 2016, but not the gates and turrets.
  • Clean and silent place. above all view was great.
