Visit Kumamoto, the most populous city in the south

In the south of Kyushu, halfway between Fukuoka and Kagoshima, Kumamoto is as much a river town as a mountain town. Proud of its castle and its volcano, the city has recovered from the earthquakes in 2016 and ascended into the future with its wind in its sails.

Kumamoto Castle

Kumamoto-jô castle is often considered one of the most beautiful in the country. The former fortress of the Hosokawa samurai clan has been renovated in 1960 is worth a visit, especially in early spring, to enjoy the spectacle of cherry blossoms in its park. 

The Hosokawa family, who ruled the domain of Higo (the former name of Kumamoto Prefecture), also left a superb Edo period aristocratic residence (the Kyû Hosokawa Gyôbu-tei) on the other side of the park that houses the castle, while the family tea house is located further south, in Suizen-ji Park.
