    熊本県北部の町、菊池市。その中心部に、きくち観光物産館がありました。物産館の前には広い駐車場があり、横の方にはさらに広々とした広場もありました。広場には、勇ましい騎馬像がありました。この騎馬像は、かつての菊池のお殿様の像なんだそうです。 物産館には菊池市の特産品が並んだいますし、きれいなトイレもあるので、ここに車を停めて市内観光の拠点に利用するのもいいですよ。

    Kumamoto Aso-gun Minamiogunimachi Akababa 1789-1
    "This large local specialty products market's name is derived from the Japanese phrase ""kiyoraka ni utsukushi"" (clean/excellent and beautiful) and that Latin word for home/building. The pyramidal market building stands along National Route 212 and embodies the desire to aim for the realization of a town with a clean environment, excellent goods, and excellent people via the work and involvement of everyone living in the community. The market sells fresh vegetables, Japanese pickles, dried foods, milk, yogurt, and much more. There's also an adjoining souvenir area and a restaurant which serves cuisine made with beef and maitake mushrooms, local town specialty products, making this the perfect place for those enjoying a scenic drive in the area to take a break."

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.
