Additional Information


Kumamoto Castle is located in the city of Kumamoto which, along with Osaka Castle and Nagoya Castle is regarded as one of Japan's three major castles. Kumamoto is often referred to as the "Ginkgo Castle" owing to the large number of ginkgo trees, whose fruit historically served as military supplies. The castle structure itself is magnificent and looks, from a distance, almost like an elegant crane taking flight. Tall, stone walls surround all four corners of Kumamoto, making it one of Japan's more heavily guarded fortresses.
