What stands out to us at OMO5 Kumamoto is the diverse range of rooms, each boasting its own distinctive charm and individualized touches. Adding a delightful touch, each room is assigned its own unique name.

During our stay, we experienced two different types of rooms. In the Entaku Twin Room, we appreciated the charming sitting area nestled between the beds, providing extra space for organizing luggage. It's worth noting that the entire floor is covered in traditional tatami mats, adding an authentic touch to the ambiance.

In the Utsuwa Twin Room, a delightful blend of Western and Japanese elements is evident, featuring an elevated platform. By rearranging the beds, we were able to create a charming playpen for our son, adding a touch of versatility to the room. Additionally, our accommodations offered captivating views of the cityscape, and we were fortunate enough to catch glimpses of the majestic Kumamoto Castle through our window.
