Kumamoto (熊本)

 

A castle town reputed for its woodlands and fresh water

 

Kumamoto, 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 Woods and Fresh Water.”
