    Kumamoto Tamana-shi Tensuimachi Oama 735-1
    "This facility consists of a tourist information center and history museum dedicated to ""Kusamakura,"" one of writer Natsume Soseki's most celebrated works. Here visitors can learn about the history behind the novel and the Maedake family through exhibits and informational panels. ""Kusamakura"" was based on Soseki's trip to Oama Onsen and the Maedake Bettei, a local hot spring inn now nicknamed the ""Soseki Inn,"" even makes an appearance in the novel. After restoration work was completed in 2004, the Maedake Bettei, excluding the main building were made open to the general public, and today, everyone who comes here can easily view the detached lodging and bath in which Soseki stayed."

    ここは、ミカン狩りに来た時に、たまたま見つけました、それで9人が学生時代を思い出しました、夏目漱石の話がとてもいい感じで説明と、DVDを見ました、しかも無料で2度びっくりしました、ほんとに良いとこでした。

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.
