Kochi Municipal Ryoma's Birthplace Memorial Museum

The museum is located in Kami-machi, Kochi City, where Sakamoto Ryoma was born. The museum introduces through models and videos not only Ryoma’s life but also his family and the history and culture of the town where he was born and raised.
There is a corner in which visitors can relive various scenes of Ryoma"s life from his perspective, covering the period between his birth and departure from the Tosa domain. Both children and adults can also contemplate Ryoma"s life more leisurely in a space created in the image of his family’s guest house. A program called “Tosappo” – taking a stroll around town with a tour guide – is also popular with visitors.
