Castle tourism in Kumamoto Prefecture

Kumamoto Prefecture is attractive because each area has a different look. Kumamoto Castle, one of Japan's top three castles built by Kiyomasa Kato, is a symbol of the prefecture. Mount Aso has one of the world's largest calderas, and you will be enchanted by the magnificent view from Daikanbo. It is home to two types and three world heritage sites, including the Sakitsu Village in Amakusa, and Amakusa in particular is notable for its beautiful islands and unique culture influenced by Christianity. The legend of the Heike's fugitives has been passed down in the unexplored mountainous area of Gokasho. I also want to enjoy Kurokawa Onsen and gourmet horse meat.
