Cute for what it is
Feb 2021
I expected something different when I typed in Kumamon Square not knowing it was a gift shop inside a big shopping mall. I came here on a rainy day and it was fun to browse some of the souvenirs. There are a few memorabilia around the store and large versions of Kumamon. It looks like there is a set up for some sort of entertainment but nothing was happening when I was here. I think if you are looking for specific Kumamon souvenirs you can probably find them here, otherwise not really worth going out of your way.

Temporary no performance
Jan 2021 • Solo
Kumamon Square is the home of Kumamon, an ambassador of Kumamoto. Usually, you can meet Kumamon and enjoy an event in this place, but now due to spreading corona disease, all schedules are canceled. It became now just a souvenir shop, which sells some goods related to Kumamon.

It would be happier if I were a kid

I took the street car to Kumamon Square and lucky enough to watch the show (free of charge) at 11:00 am. Would be happier if I were a kid.

Another must-go place in Kumamoto
Dec 2019 • Couples
You will go bananas if you are a fan of this lovely figure. Being the office of this city’s most iconic thing, it is the place that suitable for couples and families to go. Many related souvenirs to buy here though the price is quite costly. Really strongly recommended to visit this place at every 3:00pm as there is a performance of kumamon. It attracts people around the world to get here. Definitely a must-go place!!

Very small

Higly promoted place. It's actually a small shop inside a big shopping mall. Lots of Asian fans. Didn't bother to wait for the daily performance.

Must for Kumamon Fans, remember to check timetable beforehand
Jul 2018 • Solo
Kumamon will come to this place to dance and perform. Despite in Japanese, you can feel everyone's enthusiasm. You get to hug Kumamon after the performance. Please check timetable before hand of performance schedule. Also please be early for about 1-1.5hour if you want a good seat.

Kumamon Works Here!
Dec 2018 • Solo
It's worth a visit if you're a fan of Kumamon and want to see him alive. He appears here not everyday but quite often in a week, the schedule can be checked online. Come at least 1 hour earlier before the event starts because it will be packed with tourists and kids. Seats are limited but I'd suggest you stand. The show is only in Japanese though.

Other than that, it's a shop full of Kumamon products and his office which is good for photos.
