#1 of 75 in Outdoors in Shikoku
Take a stroll along Katsura Hama, a picturesque stretch of sand lined with tall pine trees. A small shrine on top of a jutting rocky cliff offers scenic views of the crescent-shaped beach and the thunderous waves crashing against its shores. View the statue of Ryoma Sakamoto, a famous Kochi samurai, have a picnic, or visit the small museum and aquarium. Swimming is prohibited on the beach, due to the dangerously strong currents.

  • The beach, which is filled with the history of the end of the Edo period and the calm Pacific Ocean, is full of visitors from both Japan and abroad. There is also a souvenir shop, a rest area and accommodation. It's a beach worth visiting and remembering.

  • The view from Urado Bridge, which was the last crossing from Kochi city centre, was a great view from the east side of the route. We parked our car in the parking lot of Katsurahama, and then went up the stone steps to the Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto. It is in the angle often seen on the television, and it is in the shape to look up considerably because it is on the hill considerably higher than the sandy beach, and the pedestal is splendid, and it is considerably looked up though it seemed to be staring at the Pacific Ocean somehow standing on the sandy beach. This may be what California wants from Ryoma's point of view. Katsurahama itself was a beautiful sandy beach, and it was fun to hear the voice of a sea lion or a fur seal from the aquarium in front of it.
