Kumamoto is often referred to as “country of fire.” Because in Kumamoto prefecture, there is Mt. Aso that still continues volcanic activity. It is a popular course in Kumamoto prefecture to see this volcano. Kumamoto castle in Kumamoto city is now restoring because part of it was broken in the 2016 big earthquake.

If you want to see the strongest castle in Japan, I recommend Kumamoto Castle in Kyushu. Kumamoto Castle was heavily damaged by the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes. The photos on this page were taken before 2016. The castle is currently under restoration. From the spring of 2021, you will finally be able to visit the castle tower. If you go to this castle, you will surely feel the atmosphere of the samurai and the feelings of the locals who protect their castle!
