Kuroshio is a summer paradise all-year-round

Just two hours away from Kochi City is the seaside town of Kuroshio, where the temperature rarely falls below 20°C/68°F any day of the year

Here, you’ll find some of the best waves (whether you’re a beginner or experienced surfer), opportunities to go whale-watching, and probably the cleanest 4-km stretch of white sand you’ve ever seen at Irino Beach (for those who would rather take a stroll or relax on the shore)???? 

Even if you’re not too much of a beach person, there is plenty to do

How about making your very own batch of artisanal sun-dried sea salt from the beautiful Pacific Ocean water? Or experience cooking Kochi’s number one soul food, katsuo-no-tataki, by searing a whole fillet of bonito over a blazing straw fire?

Kuroshio is a summer paradise for all

At Hata Surf Dojo, you can take surfing lessons at Irino beach! Learn more here: https://visitkochijapan.com/en/activities/10160
