As a big Kumamon fan, it tears me to rate the experience less than average, however, I strongly recommend for young children and families. This "square" is no more than a regular shop space renovated with a small kiosk, a shop, a small children's playground with TV and the Kumamon "office". Understanding the recent natural disasters has drastically dwindled tourists... More

Kumamon' fans must go crazy! Kumamon is not always in the office but the videos and its merchandise, food and drinks will drive you crazy. Remember to drop a message to Kumamon before you leave;)

This is the office of Kumamon, and there are many Kumoman's things. Fans will be happy since it feels like surrounding bu Kumamon.Tourists can buy souvenirs and take photos there and this shop is convenient.

Kumamon is very popular, and after seeing him in action, one would know why. He is full of energy, has lot of personality and can charm the 2-year old and the 82-year old. But what's more amazing is the care and love the whole team displays in support to this excellent ambassador of Kumamoto. His usual schedule is to come... More

Fancy about Kumamon. Need to check with the time schedule of Kumamon if you want to see it in office. Or you can go to the official website to know there it is. The sovenior inside not too attractive and quite expensive, actually you can get better outside. Worth to visit with children too. No admission fee is required.

Fun and interesting place. You get to see Kumamon "in real life". He dances and does a lot of funny acts. His "office" is also there for you to sit at his desk and take pictures. A number of Kumamon souvenirs available for sale. This place is crowded on the sales when Kumamon is in. Make sure you arrive at... More

Kumamon's office is right on the ground floor of Tsuruya Department Store. It consists of a small souvenir store, a mini auditorium and an office. They play Kumamon's videos in the auditorium all the time so that kids may dance or sing along. The items offered by the store is limited. However, some of them are really delicate, like necklaces...

It was very suitable to visit there with children. We visited there on Mon morning, but the "real" Kumamon was there on Mon afternoon. There was a Kumamon room inside, and it was full of Kumamon decoration. There was also video showing Kumanon's cute "dancing". The souvenirs of Kumamon could be found there, but not in great variety, such as... More

I got myself a few stickers and didn't spend more than 15 minutes but I can imagine kids watching the movie and drawing some pictures. You can take pictures at Kumamon's desk.
