Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kumamoto is the capital city of Kumamoto Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, Japan. Greater Kumamoto has a population of 1,460,000, as of the 2000 census. It is not considered part of the Fukuoka-Kitakyushu metropolitan area, despite their shared border. The city was designated on April 1, 2012 by government ordinance. Kato Kiyomasa, a contemporary of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, was made daimyo of half of the administrative region of Higo in 1588. After that, Kiyomasa built Kumamoto Castle. Due to its many innovative defensive designs, Kumamoto Castle was considered impregnable, and Kiyomasa enjoyed a reputation as one of the finest castle-builders in Japanese history.show more
