As you might have noticed, we LOVE Kochi (surprise)! Our mission is to share with you all of the region’s unique history, culture and beauty, because we truly believe our off-the-beaten-path destination in Japan is worth visiting. That’s why it brings us pure joy to see articles, blogs, and social media posts about visitors falling in love with this majestic place we call home
We want to share this lovely article by Japan Guide writer Raina Ong about her overnight adventure in Kochi, cycling along the crystal-clear Shimanto River, relaxing in an outdoor bath in the historic town of Kure, searing a whole fillet of bonito over a blazing rice straw fire to make katsuo no tataki (Kochi’s ultimate comfort food), and more!
