    Kumamoto Aso-gun Minamiasomura Shimono 793
    "The world's only theater dedicated to ""saru mawashi,"" a type of monkey show with a long history in Japan. The theater can accommodate 600 people and holds funny and heartwarming shows 365 days a year. Performances include handstands, walking on stilts, and even bicycle riding. The cuteness of the monkeys bring smiles to the faces of the audience and draws viewers into the performance before they know it. The theater is situated in a naturally beautiful area at the foot of Mt. Aso and inside visitors can enjoy the light banter between the monkeys and their trainers. Another great thing about the theater is that it offers subtitled translations in three languages and the theater fully incorporates universal design principles. The large theater grounds also encompass a monkey zoo where visitors can interact with monkeys, a shop selling original merchandise, and a self-service diner."

    ホテルのプランで入場券が付いていたので、行ってみました。 日曜でしたがそれほど観客は多くなく、一番前の席で見ました。 猿が可愛くて、子どもも喜んで見ていました。 すごくちゃんと芸を仕込まれていて、思った以上にクオリティが高かったです。

Kumamoto 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.
