Centered around its castle, Kumamoto stands as a historic city with plenty of modern-day appeal to add to the mix.
Explore Kumamoto's surroundings by going to Takachiho-cho (Takachiho Shrine, Takachiho Gorge, & more), Shimabara (Yusui Garden Shimeisou & Shimabara Spring Group) and Aso (Kusasenri, Aso Panorama Line, & more). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Kumamoto Castle, snap pictures at Choyo Bridge, don't miss a visit to Sl Hitoyoshi, and stroll around Nyuta Nakashima Park.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Kumamoto journey maker website .

Krakow, Poland to Kumamoto is an approximately 21.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Krakow to Kumamoto due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Krakow in March, with highs in Kumamoto at 17°C and lows at 6°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) early enough to travel to Tokyo.
