Katsurahama Beach

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. The beach has been known as a popular place to view the moon since ancient times and 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 area is called Katsurahama Park, and includes shops and even the Katsurahama Aquarium. The “Umi-no-Terrace” shopping zone, was tastefully renovated in 2022. It’s a great place to pick up souvenirs and has some great cafes and restaurants to check out.

※Swimming at Katsurahama Beach is prohibited due to the strong currents and big waves.
