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.

Katsura Hama Reviews
幕末の歴史と穏やかな太平洋に浸る事が出来る浜で国内だけでなく、海外からも観光に訪れる人で溢れています。お土産店や休憩所もあり、宿泊施設もあります。１度は訪れて記憶に残してみる価値がある浜です。 more »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.
高知市街地から東側のルートを南下し、最後に渡った浦戸大橋からの眺めは素晴らしいものでした。 桂浜の駐車場に車を駐め、まず石段を上がって坂本龍馬立像に向かいました。テレビでよく見るアングルで、なんとなく龍馬が砂浜に立ち太平洋を凝視しているように思っていましたが、砂浜よりかなり高い丘の上にあり、おまけに台座も高く立派なのでかなり見上げる形となります。これなら龍馬さんの視点からカリフォルニアが望めている... more »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.
