It is a kumamon (Kumamoto Mascot) souvenir shop. The place that you can meet Kumamon Mascot, who is the retail manager. Can check the time, which he will be in the office via website. Good place for young children. Staffs are very helpful and friendly.

Never mind that there's no more black bears in the wild in Kyushu island. We have Kumamon! Omnipresent in Kumamoto, the REAL KUMAMON does appear on the square with his name and it is a quick and fun appearance. Worthwhile seeing it. So genuine and...More

I'm never a fan of Kumamon, but I've to admit I was sort of fantasized when I entered. Guess it'll be a funny scene when Kumamon is working. We took pic inside his office since he wasn't in. Do check out his business hours if...More

Went there out of curiosity since kumamon seems to be really popular. Kumamon was out of the office when I was there. Remember to check his schedule online to find out what time will he be in the office. Not a big fan of kumamon...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.
