Katsurahama Beach



DescriptionRatingInfo
Katsurahama is a scenic beach 30 minutes south of central Kochi by bus. Because of strong currents, swimming is prohibited at Katsurahama. In place of swimming, visitors see the many other attractions located around the area. A famous statue of Kochi's favorite son, Sakamoto Ryoma stands near the beach. Sakamoto was one of the architects of modern Japan. He was instrumental in negotiating an alliance between the Choshu and Satsuma clans that helped to bring an end to Japan's feudal age in 1868. The Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum stands on the hill above the beach. Katsurahama is also known for the Tosa Dog Fighting Center, the only of its kind in Japan. Standing next to the bus terminal, the center contains a fighting ring and a museum about the local Tosa dogs, which perform in the fighting. Fights take place on scheduled match days and may also be held if a large enough crowd gathers.
