Cruises from Kochi
Kochi is the capital of Kochi Prefecture on the southern coast of Shikoku Island, Japan. The city is small and friendly, with a casual atmosphere and a dose of southern flair. It boasts several attractions of interest to travellers. A well-preserved, original, elegant, hilltop castle from the feudal period is designated Important Cultural Property, and also provides great views of all of Kochi city.
Nearby on Mt Godaisan pilgrims visit the Makino Botanical Garden and the Chikurenji Temple which is just one of the 88 temples along the Shikoku Pilgrimage. An unforgettable experience is to visit the Hirome Market, and sample traditional Kochi specialties, western-style food, Chinese food, and other dishes from around the world, all in an inclusive setting.
