Welcome to the homepage for Aoyagi, a restaurant specializing in Kumamoto cuisine.
Aoyagi opened at the foot of Kumamoto Castle in 1949. We serve kamameshi, sushi, tempura, sashimi, and other Japanese cuisine using fresh seasonal ingredients. Our rooms, which have tatami mats, paper screens, and ikebana flower arrangements, radiate a traditional Japanese atmosphere. We look forward to serving you with warmth and hospitality.

Honmaru Set Meal
The “Kumamoto Retainers’ Book of Recipes” is a recreation of Edo Period meals based on two books: “Ryori Katahi (1803)”, a valuable secret book of Kumamoto dishes; and “Saijiki (1817)”, an early-modern collection of Kumamoto foodstuffs and dishes. At Aoyagi, we have further edited the “Kumamoto Retainers’ Book of Recipes” in order to create the Honmaru Set Meal.
Please be advised that the Honmaru Set Meal is no longer served at Kumamoto Castle because of serious damages caused by The 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake Disaster. Still, we have started serving at Aoyagi, the main restaurant.
