Kochi Prefectural Museum of History

高知県立歴史民俗資料館 (Kochi Kenritsu Rekishi Minzoku Shiryoukan)
Experience the breadth of Kochi’s history in one place
This museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating Kochi Prefecture’s long history encompasses everything from Stone Age civilizations to World War 2, and also includes a fascinating look into the folklore and traditions of both seaside and mountain communities in the region.

On the grounds you will find the ruins of Oko Castle, the home and stronghold of Motochika Chosokabe (1539-1599), the former lord of the Tosa Domain (modern-day Kochi Prefecture). Be sure to check out the exhibition room dedicated to this brilliant strategist and warrior inside the museum!

While the exhibits, which change regularly, are available year-round, the grounds where you can walk among the castle ruins and the rustic Former Mimoto Family House are particularly lovely in spring, when they are surrounded by cherry trees in bloom.
