Kyushu Travel Guide

Kumamoto-city

 

Kumamoto-city, situated roughly in the center of Kumamoto-prefecture, is the

government and economic center of the prefecture.

From the early 17th century to the end of the 19th century, Kumamoto was prosperous

as a castle town. The Shira-kawa River and its branches run through the downtown area

around Kumamoto Castle.

Therefore, the city is called “City of Forest and Fresh Water.”
