  • I think many people stop by when I visited Kumamoto Castle place. Become a place or buy a souvenir, enjoy eating in Kumamoto. Even if CHOW had already decided elsewhere and does not use a break, was possible.

  • Inspect the Kumamoto Castle is more expensive I think it cannot be ridden, any here that people often do, basically no matter what. Even with discount tickets and coupons. It is this so rarely here but can't eat, can't buy you want judge calmly. He wandered alone enough is there is no money.

  • In the Kumamoto Castle in the castle: Garden Cherry Lane "bear and sake" there was collaboration with the bear BAR. Tasting set was 300 yen in three shochu, sake and wine respectively. My wife is wines that my choice was shochu. Seats sit basically standing around, but hey, it is good to break. Moreover, Kumamoto Castle and welcome warlords squad's sweet Princess is come burst into the shop has become glamorous. I was super lucky, but then talks to. Photos I regret we didn't have taken together.

  • Perfect place for buying souvenirs and tasting local products and food. Prices diverse depending on the shop but everybody can find something here.
  • Many souvenirs are worth to buy. Snacks are delicious. You can take a photo with Kumamom.
  • Nice. But places not opened after earth quake. Only ruins to be seen
  • Interesting place if you like Japan culture
  • There beneath the Kumamoto Castle Hotel Kumamoto confections and specialty shops and eateries are filled. Facilities can experience the history and Piazza is done also. 3/26 was open from the side of the johsaien large area off-limits. Cherry still could think that very beautiful if it does.
