Kumamoto University is located in the heart of Kyushu Island, in the southern part of Japan, and is rich in nature. We have the huge volcanic Aso mountain in the eastern part of Kumamoto prefecture. Kumamoto University is situated in Kumamoto city where historic Kumamoto castle is surrounded by many trees. So, the city is called FOREST CITY.
