Highlights of Kochi - K504

Discover a trio of historical and cultural offerings while on a 4.5-hour outing that lets you explore Kochi Castle's shogunate past, Katsurahama Beach's seaside statues, and the Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum's artifact-packed exhibits. You'll first trace back to the Edo period while hearing tales about the fires and wars that took place at Kochi Castle. Once the seat of Yamauchi lords, this hilltop castle's tower served as a residence and now houses historic relics and delivers sweeping views of downtown Kochi. Moving on to the golden-sand edges of Urado Bay, the crescent-shaped Katsurahama Beach is where you'll stand before a statue of Sakamoto Ryoma, a prominent Japanese political influencer who led peace negotiations between local opposing provinces at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate. You'll then delve deeper into his life at the Sakamoto Ryomo Memorial Museum, where videos, portraits, weapons and handwritten letters showcase the extraordinary yet short life he lived from 1836-1867.

• Kochi Castle: Admire the war-torn legacy and historic artifacts that fill a 17th-century citadel where Yamauchi lords once lived.
• Katsurahama Beach: Walk along Urado Bay's shore to see a statue dedicated to one of modern-day Japan's most influential figures.
• Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum: Videos, portraits and letters detail the political life and assassination of this Japanese imperial loyalist.
