“Nice place to stroll in the eveningtime”

Kato Kiyomasa Statue
Ranked #9 of 165 things to do in Kumamoto
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 May 2017

located on the edge of the castle in the city, I just happened to run into it. really nice with the castle tower in the background. At night, the castle and the statue are lit up so it's a nice night time photo shoot. There is a sign in english with an explaination of the historical significance also.

Discovered this statue just on our way to visit the Castle. The facial expression of the statue is really attractive and lively. In front of the statue is a pile of stones where some children climbed on top of them and took photos.

If you visit kumamoto castle you must visit this statue. The location is beside river and near kumamoto international building.

Kato Kiyomasa is the founder of Kumamoto Castle. It is located closed to one of the entrance. So find it first, before entering the castle. Besides, closed to it you can find Sakura nobaba.

This statue is right before you get to the moat and castle entrance on one side. It is hard to get in the sun, as its position limits it to certain times of day, but the tourists take photos all day long of it. Interesting info on the sign in English, very neat statue and placed perfect for cherry blossom trees. free and diverting
