Kochi Castle Museum of History

高知城歴史博物館(Kochijyo Rekishi Hakubutsukan)
Learn the history of the symbol of Kochi - Kochi Castle
Constructed at the beginning of the 17th century, Kochi Castle is the only castle in Japan where the original Tenshu and Honmaru (castle tower and main keep) are still standing. The Kochi Castle History Museum opened in 2017 with the aim of making historic Kochi Castle more famous. You can get a full view of Kochi Castle from the observation lobby.
The museum displays about 67,000 items, including national treasures and important cultural properties. Original artifacts like ancient documents, Japanese armor, and arts and crafts are on display, and audio guides are available in multiple languages ​​(English, Chinese, Korean, Thai), so you can listen to explanations on your smartphone or tablet.

The traditional Japanese costume corner is also very popular with both children and adults. You can try on Edo period battle helmets and war robes, and take commemorative photos of your experience.
The museum hosts a variety of special exhibitions throughout the year, so you can experience something new no matter how many times you visit Kochi!
It's recommended that you visit both Kochi Castle Museum of History and Kochi Castle itself to get the most out of the experience.
