Built on castle grounds, Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum displays artifacts and documents by Sakamoto Ryoma, a prominent figure of the Meiji Restoration. The exterior's geometric shape and large glass windows exude a contemporary ambiance. Inside, take a closer look at the documents, photographs, and correspondence of Ryoma and his contemporaries from the turbulent period of the 19th century. Don't miss the chance to visit the terrace, from which a vista of vast ocean extends across the horizon. Bear in mind that most of the info boards are in Japanese, while the English booklets are quite brief. Plan trip to Kochi with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • Very interesting. Has multi lingual electronic guide tablets
  • I enjoyed this place! Enough of the displays were in English so I was not lost at all. The topmost observatory allowed great photo-taking of the surrounding beach area. There was also an activity section where I could play with stickers in hiragana (in Ryoma's handwriting??) and arrange them to spell my name. All in all, a good trip.
