Kumamoto, a city on the island of Kyushu in Japan, is popular for its ancient castle, beautiful gardens, and serene nature spots. The city, known for its clean water and fresh air, makes for a perfect holiday destination any time of the year. The local currency is Japanese Yen (JPY).

Getting Around

Public transportation in Kumamoto is efficient; however, hiring a car gives you more flexibility and allows you to visit unseen gems in and around the city.

Car Class Recommendations

Compact and economy vehicles are preferable for solo travellers or couples due to their fuel efficiency, easy parkability, and manoeuvrability on narrow streets. Travelling with family? Consider hiring a mid-size or full-size car for comfortable seating and ample luggage space.

Parking

The city offers both on-street and off-street parking options. Remember, unlike in the UK, parking and driving are on the left side of the road.

Attractions

While there’s a lot to see in Kumamoto, renting a car allows you to explore surroundings conveniently.

Speed Limits

The general speed limits are 60 km/h on open roads and 40 km/h in urban areas. Do keep an eye on road signs for speed limit changes.

Surrounding Cities

You can experience the splendid beauty of Kyushu island's other cities, such as Fukuoka, Saga, and Nagasaki, all at a short drive from Kumamoto.
