A Guided Tour at Kumamoto Castle

Join us for an hour at Kumamoto Castle


Discovery Kumamoto will guide interested participants from Josaien up to Kumamoto Castle, imparting their wealth of knowledge on the history of the castle, as well as it's restoration since 2016, on the way. This is a highly recommended event for out-of-towners (though interested locals are more than welcome!).

Tour will begin at Josaien at 10:30 and will finish in front of the castle building. You can explore the castle on your own.

Tour fee: 550 yen

Castle fee: 800 yen
