This shrine was damaged by an earthquake and they have rebuild it. But behind this shrine is the Kumamoto Castle and repair works is still in progress, it was badly damaged so i think they need another year to do the job.

I really like the inari shrines. All of the toriis lined up looks really cool together. This one is next to the castle, too, so it's really convenient.

A colourful shrine with many statues and a few gates. A nice addition to a visit to the castle and Kato shrine as this one's design is quite different with all the red gates and foxes. When you get off the tram for the castle,...More
