Kochi Castle Museum of History

高知城歴史博物館(Kochijyo Rekishi Hakubutsukan)
Dive deep into Kochi’s past through the 67,000 artifacts on display at the Kochi Castle Museum of History
Constructed at the beginning of the 17th century, Kochi’s castle is the only one in Japan that still has its original castle tower and main keep. After exploring the grounds, be sure to stop by the Kochi Castle Museum of History, located right across the street.
Dive deep into the region’s past through the 67,000 historical materials and artworks on display. You can use the multilingual audio guide accessible through your tablet or phone (available in English, Chinese, Korean, and Thai), to learn about the long history behind the exhibits, such as ancient documents, samurai armor, and ancient arts and crafts. Make sure to stop by the costume corner to try on battle helmets and surcoat typical of the Edo Period (1603-1868). You can end your visit by enjoying a cup of coffee at the museum café while taking in the view of Kochi Castle.
The museum hosts a variety of special exhibitions throughout the year, so there is always something new to discover!
