    Kumamoto Pref. Asogunminamiogunimachi Akababa 137
    "A cafe located close to the Minamioguni Town government hall. The cafe's signature apple pies are made with apples stewed in sanonto sugar and wrapped in a handmade crust. The establishment has attracted attention for its abundant use of apples in many of its dishes, such as its ""Apple Cheese"" cake topped with apple slices, and Japanese-style curry made with apples instead of potatoes. The taste of the cafe's lovingly crafted dishes has won it many fans. The establishment also sells natural yeast breads, making it a great destination for bread-lovers. The laid-back interior gives off a secret hideaway vibe and customers can enjoy lunch through dinner here."

    Kumamoto Aso-shi Kurabaru 625-1
    "This cafe operates out of a remodeled barn which is over 200 years old. The cafe's decor exudes a Japanese modern atmosphere, and inside it serves diligently hand dripped, home-roasted coffee. Dedicated to the concept of local production for local consumption, the cafe uses ingredients grown in its own vegetable garden and farm in its foods and desserts. For lunch, the cafe offers a choice of two meals - ""Zen Lunch"" is Higo red beef sirloin diligently grilled over a charcoal fire, and ""Pasta Lunch"" is a pasta with your choice of one of three main dishes. Either one enables you to save the innate, natural sweetness, bitterness, and deliciousness of a variety of home grown vegetables."

    This is a farm-managed restaurant located on Route 387 on the Kusu Interchange heading towards Okuni. Special mention goes to the soft-serve ice cream full of fresh Jersey cow milk, with the milk giving it a rich and full-bodied flavor with a refined sweetness and pleasant aftertaste. The manager’s special Kaiji Curry is also popular.

Kumamoto Areas

around-area-map

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.
