Take a tour of Kochi Castle, one of only twelve remaining Japanese castles. Built in the early 1600s, it had to be thoroughly restored in the 18th century after a fire, but stills retains a large entrance gate, built in 1610. Roam the historic grounds--known as Kochi Park--admire the well preserved castle walls, and wander through the manicured gardens. Climb to the top of the main tower, which functions as a small museum, for panoramic views of the city. A visit to Kochi Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kochi trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
Kochi Castle Reviews
現存する天守閣のひとつ。 大きさはそれほどないが威風堂々立派な天守閣。 高知駅からもそれほど距離がないので、 観光しながら歩いていっても可。 日曜日なら日曜市もやってるのでオススメ more »One of the existing castle tower. It is not so big, but it is a dignified and splendid castle tower. It's not too far from Kochi Station, so you can walk while sightseeing. If it is Sunday, I also do sunday market, so I recommend it.
無料のガイドさんに案内されて、天守閣に上がりました。おきまりの高知市内全景も素晴らしく、途中の公園にある松も立派です。ガイドさんにいろいろ質問しながら上がると楽しいです。 more »I was guided by a free guide and went up to the castle tower. The whole view of Kochi city is wonderful, and the pine in the park on the way is splendid, too. It's fun to ask a guide a lot of questions and go up.
The culture of the Kochi area is very well displayed at this opulent Museum of History. The architectonics really put one's mind at ease. It can be cherished all day long, as not only there is much to observe; but lots to execute. Audio guidance is available. Digital interactive art is found within the exhibit, and much fun can be had for every age group.
A place with information on Kochi history and its related figures. Come here first so that you can buy the combo tickets which includes the Kochi Castle, at a discounted price. There is an observatory at the top floor that allows you to take beautiful pictures of the castle, which is just across the road.
