桂浜(Katsura Hama)
A statue of local hero Sakamoto Ryoma with incredible beach views
Katsurahama is one of the most scenic spots in all of Kochi Prefecture. Known since ancient times as a popular place to view the moon, the scenery has even been described in the lyrics of a famous Kochi folk song, yosakoi bushi.
Set against a backdrop of green pine trees and an azure sea, a statue of the local samurai hero Sakamoto Ryoma gazes out over the Pacific Ocean. If you want to know more about Ryoma, one of the most famous samurai in Japan, check out The Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum located nearby.
The entire beachfront is called Katsurahama Park, and includes shops and even the Katsurahama Aquarium.
