Things to know

Kumamoto Castle, designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan. It has about 600 years of history, and is a castle deeply involved with countless Feudal Lords who have left their mark in history including Japan's most famous master fencer, "Musashi Miyamoto." It has many highlights, such as the large ginkgo trees that inspired its other name, "Ginkgo Castle," architecture called "mushagaeshi" (that which turns warriors around to go back) that are said to be impossible to climb, even for ninjas!
