Review of Kato Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/27 Good place to visit for quick prayer and goshuin
Goshuin is the red stamp / Calligraphy done on a special Japanese stamp book

The price is 300 yen and you can also pray

Please read on the Internet while there

I spent about 10 mins here
Reviewed:2019/12/21 offers a great view of Kumamoto castle
This shrine is quite a walk from the tram station but its worth a visit for a nearer view of Kumamoto castle.
Reviewed:2018/07/16 Kumamoto is so beautiful!
I spent 6 months in Kumamoto and they were just perfect. I passed by the shrine every day from work and it is beyond beautiful!

          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.
