Kumamoto Castle is an impressive castle located in the centre of Kumamoto City. The castle was built in the early 1600s and has stone walls, moats, turrets, halls, pavilions, shrines and a palace building.
I walked up to the top floor of the castle and got a great view of Kumamoto City.
Nearby is the Honmaru Goten Palace which has rooms adorned with colourful Japanese screens and artefacts.
Tip to visitors: Get the “Guide of Kumamoto Castle Touring Course” from the ticket-office and take one of the three tours of the castle that are listed in the Guide.
