What's Kochi About ? Tell Us About It!

Kochi Prefecture can be found bordering the Pacific Ocean, as well as both Ehime Prefecture and Tokushima Prefecture. It is the largest of the four Prefectures that make up Shikoku, yet it also has the lowest population. This is mostly because of the region’s terrain, as it consists of mountainous landscapes. 85% of the Prefecture is also covered in rather thick forests. The landscape means that a lot of the region has not been built on.

Venturing to the Prefecture is something that tourists from abroad rarely do, yet it can offer the perfect location for any traveller that seeks to enjoy nature. It is also highly recommended that anyone visiting the Prefecture tries Katsuo no Tataki, a dish that the region is known for. It consists of a lightly seared skipjack tuna or bonito.

If you are seeking a place that is full of nature, then you should head to the Southern side of the Prefecture, as around 90km away from Kochi City you will find Cape Muroto. The area is famous for the scenic views that it can offer anyone that is willing to hike around it, and it consists of a number of v-shaped cliffs that face the sea directly. There are also a number of subtropical forests in the area, each with flora and fauna that look beautiful.

There is also a famous beach that can be found a short distance South of Kochi City, and it features a statue of the notable Sakamoto Ryoma. He was known to be one of the architects of modern Japan, and he was inspired by the phrase ‘all men are equal’. He had the ability to unify Prefectures that had been against each other for long time periods, and you can even find the inn where he was assassinated in Kyoto Prefecture. You can also find a small aquarium near the beach, which is usually filled with people who live in the Prefecture.
