Cruises to Kumamoto

Situated on the island of Kyushu, Kumamoto is nicknamed "Hi No Kuni" (Fire Country) due to its proximity to stunning Mount Aso-an active volcano. The city's castle, temples and shrines offer a glimpse into the region's storied past while the surrounding mountainside offers incredible vistas of the vibrant city and lush countryside. For a peaceful stroll, visit the popular Suizenji Jojuen Park, which is a beautifully landscaped traditional Japanese garden constructed around a natural spring pond. To dive into even greater relaxation, soak in the healing powers of Ueki Hot Springs that are located outside the city.
