    Kumamoto Pref. Kumamotoshichuouku Suizenjikouen 8-1
    This strolling garden has been noted as one of Japan's Places of Scenic Beauty as well as a Historic Site. Construction of the garden was started by Lord Hosokawa Tadatoshii, who was the first Hosokawa lord of the Higo province and Kumamoto, and would continue for three generations. The large 10,000 square meter lake in the garden is filled with water from the Aso spring. The park opens at 7:30 AM from March to October and at 8:30 AM from November to February and a morning stroll is highly recommended. Horseback archery events are held in the spring and fall and during the summer Noh theater performances are held by fire light. Entrance to the park is a three-minute walk from the Suizenji Park stop on the Kumamoto streetcar.

    The park feels very peaceful & quiet. I spent the whole morning in the park. Thw toilets are clean too. I think it is worth paying 400 yen to enter this park.

    Kumamoto Pref. Asoshi Ozato 781
    A multipurpose tourist facility home to Rose Garden Aso, a rose garden boasting some 400 varieties of roses and 4,500 individual rose bushes which blossom in the spring and fall. There is also a strawberry garden and a restaurant serving Japanese Brown beef. The scheduled opening of the rose garden is from the end of April. As portions of National Route 57 are unusable due to the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake, visitors traveling by car are encouraged to take Kumamoto Prefectural Road 339 from Ozu-machi, Kikuchi-gun and get on National Route 57 from Akamizu in Aso City. A 10-minute walk from JR Aso Station.

    Enjoy your meal in the garden, likely staying in roses farm, feeling like the princess, and some food make by roses. Excellent place.

    Kumamoto Aso-gun Ubuyamamura Tajiri 771

    とても広大な景色が広がって、気持ちの良い場所でした。 でも、ヒゴタイが終わってからあまり訪れる人がいないのか、ビジターセンターも閉まっていて、閑散としていました。 コスモスが咲いていたけれど、手入れをされていないのでまばらで勿体ない感じでした。

Kumamoto Main Areas


Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
