  • Dropped in to take pictures as it looked so attractive with the red banners and flags. It is near the entrance of Kumamoto Castle if you are taking the one that is nearest to downtown Kumamoto .  more »
  • I really like the inari shrines. All of the toriis lined up looks really cool together. This one is next to the castle, too, so it's really convenient.  more »

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.
