    多分、国宝の青井神社と駐車場は共通。青井神社へは駐車場から見えるそばの鳥居ではなく、正面の大きな赤い鳥居からは行って欲しい。 売っているものは普通に物産館。人吉を中心に熊本の地の物が売っている。 暑かったため、そとのかき氷には行列ができていた。 無料の足湯もあったが、そばに喫煙所があったため入るのは諦めた。 喫煙所の場所は考え直して欲しい。

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.
