Hitoyoshi travel guide

Hitoyoshi is located in the northern part of Kumamoto along Kuma-gawa River.

Hitoyoshi is a castle town once prosperous as a river port, and boasts the ruins of the

Hitoyoshi castle and Hitoyoshi Onsen.

The Hitoyoshi Onsen is the collective name for 30-add hot springs including Sagara

Onsen, all of which are supplied with hot water from sources around Hitoyoshi Station

and in the basin of Kuma-gawa River.

The most exiting thing in Hitoyoshi is Kumasawa-kudari that is riding on a boat maneuvered

by a master polar down the Kuma-gawa River, one of the three fast streams in Japan.
