Kumamoto Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


The emblematic castle standing in the heart of the city, one of the most remarkable gardens in Japan, a museum dedicated to national and international art… not to mention a surrounding area of great interest, boasting the impressive Mt Aso, with the varied landscapes of its caldera, and the Amakusa islands, the cradle of Christianity in Japan. Kumamoto, in the centre of the island of Kyushu, is definitely worth a visit.
