The Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum

高知県立坂本龍馬記念館 (Kochikenritsu Sakamoto Ryouma Kinenkan)
Discover the legacy of Sakamoto Ryoma, one of Japan’s most influential and beloved samurai
Ryoma Sakamoto is a Kochi-born hero who played an instrumental role in ending the 250-year-long feudal age in 1868, which marked the beginning of Japan’s modernization. Ryoma is still one of the most beloved historical figures in the country, widely respected for his charismatic personality and ability to bring people together despite turmoil.
Among other exhibits, Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum houses the world’s most extensive collection Ryoma’s letters, written while drafting his plan to overthrow the government. The museum not only provides insight into Ryoma’s legacy, but also why the collapse of the feudal regime in 1868 was such a turning point in Japanese history.
Fronted by the Pacific Ocean, the museum is located on a hill above Katsurahama Park. Don’t forget to stop by the life-size statue of Ryoma standing at the museum entrance for a selfie with the man himself!
