  1. The pretty city of Kumamoto is the capital of the wider Kumamoto Prefecture and is part of the island of Kyushu. Like many cities in Japan, Kumamoto is known for having a stunning castle and is also close to the mighty Mount Aso which is a still-active volcano, which has led to the city being known as Hi No Kuni which means ‘Fire Country’ in Japanese. As well as the castle and mountain, Kumamoto is also a place where you can explore a number of interesting museums, galleries and shopping arcades or you can also go for a leisurely afternoon walk in the beautiful Japanese gardens that adorn the city.
