Kumamoto: Kumamoto Castle Area

Kumamoto: Kumamoto Castle Area

Considered one of Japan’s three most impressive castles – along with the Himeji and Matsumoto – Kumamoto Castle is something of a must-see for any first-time visitor to the city. A large and well-fortified castle, there’s plenty to explore when visiting with around 800 cherry trees spread throughout the surrounding park. Blooming in late-March to early-April, Kumamoto Castle is a popular cherry blossom spot while continuing to attract visitors throughout the year.

The area on each side of the castle and surrounding grounds is large, with accommodation dotted throughout. You’ll find the largest concentration of hotels and guesthouses on the south-eastern side of the castle grounds, including large hotels, mid-size business hotels, guesthouses and self-contained options. Easy to reach using tram services from Kumamoto Station, you’ll also find plenty of dining options in the area making it an appealing area in which to base yourself. Hotels and guesthouses surround all sides of the castle grounds with tram services also running to the western side but not covering the northern side making it a less convenient area to stay.
