The cape is a geology park surrounded by tropical plants, locating at the eastern end of Tosa Bay.

Long drive from Kochi through beautiful countryside. The site has several walking trails and a number of parking places. English maps are painted on the walking trail. The lighthouse and temple on the mountain are an easy walk from one of the parking spots. Cape Muroto makes for a varied day Programme.

Of all of the stops listed in the tourist map for the Geopark, this was the most stunning. We spent a lot of time exploring the walking paths along the coast (mangroves and tropical vegetation) and trampling along the rocks by the ocean. I do wish we had gotten here a little earlier. We arrived late in Muroto, and approached... More

I visited Cape Muroto as a cycling pilgrim in April 2015. The distance between Yakuo-ji (#23 藥王寺) to Hotsumisaki-ji (#24 最御崎寺) is eighty something kilometers, such a long journey! My travel mate and me was lucky that it was nice and clear weather. The road along the ocean to Cape Muroto (室戶岬) is exactly marvelous blue. The scenery is like... More
