Kumamoto castle

we were so lucky as we had walked to the nearby castle-considered 1 of the 5 great ones in Japan- and there were special events for the full moon. Tea ceremony with intense matcha. Then inside we were treated to an amazing group playing koto and shamisen and flute...originally planned for an outdoor stage the rain spurt gave us a bonus as we were brought into the official ancient hall where no tourist is normally allowed!
