Tatsukushi Marine Park is located on the southernmost coastline of Kochi. Japan's first ever designated Marine Park sees warm waters throughout the year, bringing fish, shellfish and enriching one of Japan's biggest coral reefs. Take a glass-bottom boat tour to enjoy the colour and beauty of this part of Kochi's coastline. Completely exposed to the wind and waves of the open ocean, the coast is lined with interesting rock formations.

Within the Marine Park is the Minokoshi Coast - said to have been named by revered Buddhist monk, Kukai, who was unable to see everything the coast had to offer (Minokoshi means left unseen).

Chikurinji is a Buddhist temple famous for its historic gardens and is part of the Shikoku O-henro (the Pilgrimage to 88 Sacred Places).
In autumn, maple and ginkgo trees color the gardens in reds and yellows. Passing under the main temple gate, the colors of the garden radiate out from the stone-paved walkway. Fall colors paint the sky above, while striking green moss covers the ground beneath leading to a colorful five story pagoda. Even in the summer, Chikurinji should not be missed. The combination of green leaves and moss creates a sort of green tunnel that will have you feeling as though you've been spirited away. Another highlight is the Homotsu-kan, a room housing Buddhist statues that are listed as important cultural property.

Kochi locals are known for their love of drink, so it's not unusual to see people drinking from noon here.
There is also a bar corner called “Hirome Bar” where Italian, Spanish and French food and drinks are also available.
Nicknamed "Kochi's Kitchen", this is one spot you simply cannot miss!
