Tosaden Kotsu streetcars have 2 lines, crossing Kochi city. It is the most convenient way to access JR train station, Kochi Castle, shopping area and other attractions.

The downtown Kochi is not very big, and if you like, you can even walk. I however recommend you take a short trip on this tram: for example from JR station to Harimayabashi. It brings you back to the past days of Showa Epoch.

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry、the Suica card isn't valid on the Kochi trams. Only the “DESUKA” card issued at Kochi is valid.
