Kumamoto Castle, the symbol of Kumamoto City, is one of the three most famous castles in Japan, and was built over a period of seven years from 1601 by Kiyomasa Kato, who was known as a master castle builder. The city continued to develop as a castle town of 540,000 goku, and has nurtured its own unique culture and traditions, such as the famous Suizenji Seishuen garden, which remains today as the garden of a feudal lord.
