Japan's great southern fortress
Kumamoto Castle is a magnificent castle located in Kumamoto Prefecture, inside the Kyushu region. It is the symbol of the city and has been for nearly 400 years. Although the main structures of the castle are concrete reconstructions, there are several areas where original buildings still stand.
Easily accessed by train then bus, or use of the inexpensive parking lot, the city has made enjoying the castle incredible easy. In addition to being near several other tourist attractions such as museums, the castle site has made sure most tourists can properly learn about the castle's history with pamphlets in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean. To learn the castle's secrets however, I highly recommend signing up for a free tour (in Japanese or English only). The tours can be signed up for on the spot without advance reservations. Tours are held throughout the day with a few every hour. And again, they are free!!

Suizenji Cherry Blossom Festival
Be enchanted in a traditional Japanese garden
A moment in time. The cherry blossom comes but once a year, and in a few days, it vanishes, scattered by the wind. Poets and lovers have gathered under its display for centuries, and in Kumamoto’s Suizenji Park, the cherry blossom festival celebrates the coming of the New Year with ancient readings and tea ceremonies, where you can sit on a tatami mat and admire the manicured gardens which represent the 53 road stations of the Tokaido.
