Nakashimaya is a traditional Japanese inn and is located in the downtown of Kumamoto, providing you with rooms with tatami and futon at very reasonable price from 2000 yen per night. You can enjoy staying with us.

Enjoy taking a stroll by Kumamoto castle, one of the three major castles in Japan.

Very near Kumamoto Kotsu Center. Easy access to, Aso, the famous caldera, Amakusa, Kurokawa onsen, Beppu in Oita prefecture, Takachiho in Miyazaki prefecture, Fukuokak, Nagasaki, Kagoshima, Saga and etc. Best for you finding a reasonable inn like a guest house, a youth hostel, and an inn for backpackers.

Enjoy Dyeing. How about making your handkerchief, T-shirt and sneakers by Roketsuzome or Shiborizome.
