Kumamoto Castle Towers Restoration Completed

Members of the media were shown inside the restored main towers of Kumamoto Castle on April 6. The tower areas will be opened to the public from April 26. In the quake of 2016 both were severely damaged. Many other repairs, reinforcements and modifications were made including a slope to the entrance of the small tower and elevators to provide easy access to observation decks. The permanent exhibition focuses on the history of the towers, introducing the structures from their original construction to modern times with models and videos.
