Kumamoto

Kumamoto Prefecture located in the central west of Kyushu, is a tourism goldmine with Kumamoto Castle and Mt. Aso being landmarks that represent the prefecture. Kumamoto Castle is perhaps one of the most impressive and most complete castles in Japan, and has been a strong magnet for tourists both domestically and internationally. Its vast grounds also act as a great spot to view the cherry blossoms in Spring time. For those who want to be one with nature, Mt. Aso is truly a beautiful area, with fantastic views, lush green grass, and the mountain itself still being an active volcano! Amakusa and the many little islands that make up the area just south of Kumamoto city are also popular scenic areas, and you can even see wild dolphins swimming around if you are lucky!
