Katsura Hama, Kochi

3.7
#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.

  • 【High evaluation points】 Katsurahama is scenic when the weather is nice. It's not a big sandy beach, so it's perfect when you want to sit down and relax while taking a walk. There is an aquarium and a museum nearby. 【Points to evaluate low】 None

  • One of Kochi Tourism Kijon! The parking lot is also very crowded at gw and the holidays, but the next one is safe because there is shuttle bus support. Take a commemorative photo with the statue of Ryoma Sakamoto, which you often see on TV. It is small, but there is an aquarium which is working hard, too! Let's cool off with the specialty "Ice Clyne" in hot weather!
