The Kumamoto Castle under the blue sky is very magnificent. Magnificent; 2, Kumamoto Bear Minister, a mascot with two sprouts and blushing, here is its hometown, where the figure of Kumamoto Bear is everywhere; 3, horse meat sashimi, horse meat sashimi is the special food here, The freshness of the meat is very high, so in addition to Kumamoto, other places are not eaten! Moreover, the fat content of horse meat is low, and the ginger and garlic juice are really the entrance! z

Visit Kumamoto Castle's 2 classic routes
to Kumamoto, where you will be the Kumamoto Castle. This Kumamoto Castle, once known as indestructible and never captured, collapsed in the attack of two earthquakes. Nowadays, in Kumamoto Castle, the glory of the past is faintly visible, but more is the wreckage. It is said that it takes 20 years for Japan to repair the Kumamoto Castle.
Tour Route 1: There are two routes to visit Kumamoto Castle. Most people choose to go up from the steps behind the Sakura Horse Racecourse, because Kumamoto Castle is built on the hills and the terrain near the Sakura Racecourse is relatively low. Short, it doesn't take much effort to get up. Along the way, you will pass through a wide grassland that has not been applied for, Yuan Taigu, Xi Dashou, and Erwan Park. After a round, you will arrive at Kato Shrine.
Features: The grass is photographed, the street in front of the Arboretum Arboretum is seen in the cherry blossoms
tour route 2: From Kumamoto's largest Tsuruya department store, walk along the road to Kumamoto Castle Inari Shrine Follow the road to visit the three tracks, the East 18th, do not open the door, and then climb a huge slope (a little laborious) to reach the Kato Shrine.
Line features: Visit Inari Shrine, less quiet, green avenue
!! The two routes are not repeated and are worth visiting.
Last tip: To see Kumamoto's iconic building, the size of the sky, the best location is in the courtyard of the Kato Shrine, and Kato Kiyoshi is the legendary figure who built this Kumamoto city.
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.
