If you are looking for that only-in-Kochi shot to show off your photography skills and the beauty of Kochi City, these are 3 spots you need to check out:
1) Chikurin-ji Temple: the lush moss and fresh summer green make this mountaintop temple cool and softly dappled. The stone staircase, elegant wooden gate and famous gardens are a shutterbug's delight.
2) Katsurahama Beach and Watatsumi Shrine: as if the pristine sand, pine trees, ocean views (and huge statue of Sakamoto Ryoma) weren't enough, the sights of the shrine's torii gate framing the steep staircase and Pacific Ocean is sure to have you reaching for your camera!
3) Kochi Castle: rising high above the city, you can't miss this important landmark. The thick stone walls, soaring roofline and pleasant park here are perfect for capturing the history of Kochi.
