Not going to leave Kumamoto without seeing the MONKEY D. LUFFY STATUE (One Piece). Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, grew up in Kumamoto and donated a huge amount of money after the devastating earthquake in 2016. To commemorate his generous act, the Kumamoto government decided to build statues of the Strawhat crew in different locations in Kumamoto.

We went to KUMAMOTO CASTLE afterwards but we only saw the outside. The castle suffered serious damage from the 2016 earthquake and reconstruction is still ongoing.

For lunch, we went to MATSUYA and ordered gyumeshi. But our curiosity was piqued with the cheese hamburg so we also got this but for sharing. Sooo good! Even better than the gyumeshi.
