To really get a feel for Kumamoto, take a trip to one of its fabulous cultural destinations. In particular, you should make sure you check out the Kumamoto Prefectural Traditional Crafts Centre.
Kumamoto has a number of noteworthy places to see such as the Suizenji Gardens. Those with a passion for history will enjoy spending a few hours at Kumamoto Castle.
Nearby KKWing Stadium is the perfect place to spend an afternoon enjoying soccer, and to see local favorites, the Roasso Kumamoto, in all their glory. On match days follow the procession of red and white, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join local soccer lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe and relive the action over a friendly drink or two.
After a long day exploring the delights of Kikuyo, put up your feet and relax at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. The Kumamoto Washington Hotel Plaza, the APA Hotel Kumamoto-Kotsu-Center- Minami and the R&B Hotel Kumamoto Shimo-tori are just three of the many great places to stay around here.
