- Kumamoto Castle
A symbol of the town boasting a history that dates back over 400 years
Once referred to as the impregnable castle, impressive defense mechanisms are built into the stone walls and other aspects of the castle. The beautiful ornaments in the "Honmaru Palace" restored in 2008 are also a must see.
