John EwaltThe architecture for the castle is similar to what one associates with Japanese castles. The screens inside are impressive, as can be the view from inside. The flower garden on the grounds is also nice.

vivienvivienKumamoto Kumamoto Square is located on the 1st floor of the Tsuruya Department Store Higashikan, and Kumamoto City Electric Watercourses arrive. It was built by the Kumamoto Prefecture government in 2013 at a cost of about 46 million yen. There is an exchange district, a sales store around Kumamoto Kumamoto, and, best of all, a bear minister's office.

City Park
John EwaltThis garden area is within walking distance of Kumamoto Castle. From the front entrance, the area to the back and to the right tend to be a bit quieter than rest of the garden. A quick walk-around should take 10-20 minutes, but a leisurely stroll would be more appropriate.

翱翔的大鲨鱼The head of Kumamoto Station appears at Kumagawa Railway's Happy Bear Station! In addition to the sales director of Kumamoto Prefecture, Kuma also serves as the director of happiness! Kumamoto Prefecture, which aims to "maximize the total happiness of the citizens of the prefecture", regards Kumamon as a symbol of Kumamoto's happiness, and it is very appropriate to become the head of happiness at Kumamoto's happiness station. Don't miss it by Minami Aso Railway.

Todemmy[Scenery] Kumamoto City Hall [Fun] Kumamoto City Government Building, the tram is at the same station as Kumamoto Castle. During non-office hours, you have to take the elevator from the side door to the fourteenth floor and you can see the entire Kumamoto Castle. In fact, it is just a row of windows with some information. No one checks and there is no charge. The view is good.

Accident Originally, I booked the trip to Kyushu because the flight tickets were cheap. I didn't expect that I would miss the plane (crying). In the end, I had to buy a transfer ticket from Hong Kong to Fukuoka, which cost me an extra 3000 RMB (my heart is bleeding). Luckily, I went to Victoria Peak and the night view over there cured my injured soul.
