City of Kumamoto熊本市

The City of Kumamoto is about 30 minutes away from the City of Fukuoka by bullet train and two hours away by bus, an easily accessible location. In the center of the city is the iconic Kumamoto Castle with narrow alleys surrounding the nearby neighborhoods, a popular gathering spot for students, locals, and tourists alike. Known as one of Kyushu's two famous ramen cities, the pork-based tonkotsu broth ramen is not to be missed. In September 2019 the city will host the Rugby World Cup and in November of 2019 the Womens Handball World Championships will take place here. Both are not to be missed.
