A great place for photographing seashore scenery. Visit Ryoma’s tall bronze statue, climb up many stairs to cliffside scenic spots, visit a castle ruin site, take in an aquarium, among other things to do. Your MyYu 1-day pass allows you to catch the ordinary local...More

Katurahama is one of the most beautiful beache in Kochi. However swimming is prohibited here. A beautiful moon may be seen when you go out at night. 高知と言えば桂浜。空港からそれほど遠くないので、市内に行く前に寄るのが効率的かも。水は綺麗ですが、遊泳は禁止とか。月がきれいらしいのので、次は夜に訪れたい。

Waves beat the shore even without strong winds. You can command over-180-degree view of the sea horizon. When you stand at Katsurahama Beach, there is no wonder why bakumatsu patriots in Tosa could enjoy wider outlook on the world than those in the center of...More

Nothing to see in this beach. Nothing special and the view is not spectacular. But it is nearby the cruise port.

It was October when I visited the place. The sunshine was still strong and we found it hard to walk around the beach. Cooler season ks better to visit. You can enjoy shopping near the beach.

The whole beach is covered with small rocks, so it is very painful to walk across barefoot. Swimming is not allowed. I am not sure why our tour group stopped here. There are a few gift shops off the parking lot, but they had the...More

It is a very large beach which can be reached by car from Kochi Station in about 30 minutes. If the weather is nice, you will have a comfortable day. The front is the Pacific Ocean. A short walk will bring you to the cutting...More

This place shouldn't really be called a beach. There's signboards indicating that swimming is strictly forbidden. Therefore people may be misled. The landmark should rather be the historical figure that they came to see. Just like most beaches, if any, here on the island, the...More
