Yamaga City is in the northern part of Kumamoto Prefecture and was developed as post town on the Buzen Kaido Way. Yamaga Onsen is one of the most historical hot spring resorts in Kumamoto and has an abundance of high-quality hot spring water. Rice farms can be found along the Kikuchi River which runs through Yamaga City. In ancient times, burial tombs were constructed here. Together with the Buzen Kaido Way in the modern era and Yachiyo-za Playhouse and Sakura-yu Onsen in more recent years, the entire area is wonderfully rich in culture. Enjoy the romance and hospitality of Yamaga.
