KUMAMOTO

Interested in history? How about stunning nature? Time to visit Kumamoto. Located in the centre of Kyushu Island, Kumamoto is a modern city, home to the historic Kumamoto Castle. Though, if you’re looking for more things to do in Kumamoto, simply venture out into the wider prefecture! Mount Aso (one of the largest and most active volcanoes in Japan) and Takachiho Gorge are some of Kumamoto’s best attractions, allowing you a chance to reconnect with nature. For those looking to unwind, the Kurokawa Onsen hot spring resort is said to be one of Japan’s finest. As things are spread around, it’s easiest to explore by car at your own pace. To help you get around, check out some of our favourite things to do in Kumamoto.
