“A Mark”

Kato Kiyomasa Statue
Ranked #9 of 165 things to do in Kumamoto
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 August 2017

Besides the history behind, this statue, that is just on the way to the Kumamoto Castle, seems a symbol of Kumamoto people perseverance and hardwork after the last year earthquake.

The actual Castle was closed when we went to visit due to the earthquake a hear earlier. This statue stands at one of the entrances and it has great presence.

The Kumamoto castle was recently damaged heavily by an earthquake so the castle grounds are closed. You may walk around the perimeter and then you’ll come across this nice statue of a famous warlord. There is a shrine to honor him half-way around the perimeter of the castle ground which would be interesting to visit. From there you can see more of the damage done to the castle grounds.

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.
