The Treasures of Kumamoto Castle

Splendid reconstruction of the reception hall

I am often a bit disappointed when I hear "This is a reconstruction, the original building burnt down". In the case of Kumamoto Castle however, there is no need to be disappointed at all. The reception hall in particular, the rooms inside Honmaru Goten Palace, where the lord would receive his guests, has left me speechless. It is a splendid reconstruction; elegant, striking, colorful, mesmerizing. This room alone would make a visit to Kumamoto Castle worthwhile.
