Hitoyoshi is located in the southernmost part of Kumamoto Prefecture, along the Kuma River. From the Kamakura era (1192-1333) Lord Sagara and his descendants maintained the town’s independence for 700 years, despite the continuing threat of the Satsuma domain (now Kagoshima Prefecture) to the south. A unique ethos and culture can be seen here and this town is called . Touring the local breweries and soaking in the onsens is recommended.
