Kumamoto Castle

Kumamoto-jô castle is often presented as one of the most beautiful in the country. Only its watchtower is period (1607), but the former fortress of the Hosokawa samurai clan has been renovated and is worth a visit, especially in early spring, to enjoy the spectacle of cherry blossoms in its park. 

The Hosokawa family, who ruled the fiefdom 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.
