The Castle is one of the three great castles and one of the 100 best places in Japan to

are being performed as fast as possible. Now, the Kumamoto Castle can be seen from the outside of

the moats surrounding the castle.


Suizenji-koen Park

Imitated the beautiful scenery of Japan, is a refined circular garden of Momoyama period style and 

represents the 53 Stations of the Tokaido Road including Mt. Fuji.

The fresh springs in the garden release clean, cold water, which flows there from Mount Aso via

underground currents.



A Mecca for tourists visiting Aso, Daikanbo literally means a big observatory peak.

The circumference of the Aso caldera is about 130 kilometers. From the observation site, you can

clearly see its conical shape.
Early in the morning, the clouds had spread out below us, and hung over the caldera as if they

were a large sea.

Takachiho Gorge

The narrow chasm cut through the rock by the Gokase River. The nearly sheer cliffs lining the gorge

are made of slow forming volcanic basalt columns which resemble the scales of a dragon where the

stone twisted and flowed as it formed.


Takachiho Shrine

 Located just west of the town center, is nestled in a grove of tall cedars. During the day the shrine’s 

nondescript, unpainted buildings blend in naturally with the surrounding trees. The light that filters through,

brings with it an air of calm, peaceful reverence.


Amano Iwato Shrine

Legends of Japanese mythology. In the story, Amaterasu, the Shito sun goddess, became so outraged

by her brother’s cruel pranks that she hid herself in a cave, refusing to come out and depriving the

world of her life-giving light.
