One of Japan's most iconic structures, Kumamoto Castle dates back to the 15th century and draws flocks of visitors with its distinct architecture and scenic grounds. This castle was designed by a local warrior, who made it an effective defense fortification. While visiting the complex, you can roam the castle's stone walls and turrets, some of which survived unchanged for centuries, admire the imposing main keep, or pay a visit to the onsite museum, where you can view displays about the history and various reconstructions of the site's buildings. Boasting hundreds of plants, the grounds make an idea spot for viewing blossoming cherry trees.

Kumamoto Castle Reviews
As usual when visiting Japanese castles, we did not allow enough time. This is a 'goodie' and an easy walk from The Comfort hotel more »
熊本市内にある熊本城は、2016年の熊本地震で石垣は崩れたりと被害が出ましたが、現在は周布工事中でその姿を見ることができます 工事中なのでお城に入ることができませんが、近くまで有料で行くこともできるようです。 公園の外周からもあることができますが、熊本市電の停留所からは見えないので熊本市役所の展望に行くと全体が見えました。 more »Kumamoto Castle in Kumamoto City, which is located in Kumamoto City, collapsed and damaged the stone wall due to the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake, but now you can see its appearance under the construction of the perimeter, so you can not enter the castle because it is under construction, but it seems to be able to go to the castle for a fee. It can be from the outer circumference of the park, but i can't see it from the Kumamoto Tram stop, so I went to see Kumamoto City Hall and saw the whole thing.
Wish the castle will be renovated soon. So sad to see the rock, the debris of structures downs there. Even though the great of man-made castle is still there. Worth to spending time walking around the place.
Many parts of the castle was affected during an earthquake. They are currently restoring the castle. But still a very beautiful place!
