Better visit in summer

Not much to do in winter but you can still have a good walk along the beach and the view is good. Some shops near the beach are closed during low season

The tourist information center recommended this place and I have 1 day to spare to go somewhere outside the city. About 40 min from the city. The beach is small but beautiful. Expect some climbing but worth it.

You can see the blue ocean and hear the powerful wave sound. It is just a beautiful beach. There are lots of similar or more beautiful beaches in the world. The reason Japanese tourists visit this place is to see the statue of Ryoma Sakamoto, the most popular Samurai. He was born in Tosa (ancient name of Kochi), small town,... More

A beautiful and scenic Beach well worth a visit. Ask your hotel or the friendly ladies at the Kochi tourist information for the tide tables because the best time of the day to view the surf is, of course, at high tide. Across the bay there is a Shinto shrine on a rock (see foto ) which contrasts nicely to... More

We strolled along the beach and watched how the waves rolled. There is an aquarium nearby which is popular for families with kids. We crossed a small bridge which led us up to the top of hill. We really appreciated its natural beauty. Highly recommend.

Spend a few hours here if you like to take photos. Try to find some famous 5 color stones at the beach.

After my tour at Sakamoto Ryoma museum, I went to Katsurahama beach to enjoy the rest of the day. It's really a beautiful place! There's a long promenade that will take you to a small shrine closed to the ocean. There's also an aquarium if you come with kids.

It is a must for visitors to Kochi. The beach, although it is not allowed to swim here, is marvelous! Can you imagine that Ryoma (a hero of Kochi and a great contributor for the Meiji Restoration) once stood here!
