What people are saying:

Although the earthquake two years ago has caused serious damage, I would like to see it. Looking at the falling bricks and stones, not only in the face of nature in the small human in the face of the present Kumamoto City is only a third of the open, looking at the local residents happy smile, imagine many years after the restoration of Kumamoto City, I will definitely come again.

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.
