A fine statue of Kato Kiyomasa, right in front of Kumamoto Castle built by him. Good for photo taking with the Castle at the backdrop, and that’s all!

It is situated near the castle and is very well made. There are also the panels nearby explaining the historical background. I really like his hat.

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.
