Castelo de Kochi, Kochi

(4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of Castelo de Kochi, one of only twelve remaining Japanese castles. Built in the early 1600s, it had to be thoroughly restored in the 18th century after a fire, but stills retains a large entrance gate, built in 1610. Roam the historic grounds--known as Kochi Park--admire the well preserved castle walls, and wander through the manicured gardens. Climb to the top of the main tower, which functions as a small museum, for panoramic views of the city. A visit to Castelo de Kochi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kochi vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • 為了配合日曜市,我是星期六晚到訪高知市的,早上逛完日曜市,午餐於Hirome市場,之後再順路到高知城逛逛,這樣安排,我覺得最順路省時又滿足。如日本其他城市般,每每都有一個城可登一登,雖然一般都好像大同小異,但各處都總會帶給我一種安寧閒逸的感受。 
  • There are 12 castle in Japan which are considered as original. Kochi castle is one of those. It has a good view with historical information. 
  • Walk up the hill from the street. Climbed up from the side of the Government because the breath has expired. Unfortunately allowed in the evening was not the scenery here is beautiful. It was local to take a walk with a dog. MOSS-covered stone walls is very good, so I felt the history.

  • Nice view and beatiful castle grounds. Worth a visit if you're in Koci.
  • One of Japan's few remaining original castles. It's unique in that the main keep has an attached residence whereas most castles the residences are in the ninomaru.
  • A beautiful castle and one of few originals in Japan that weren't rebuilt. The walk up to the top is really nice, and the view from the very top itself is beautiful. I highly recommend this.
  • One of the originals and the only castle in Japan that I have visited in the rain. It was still very enjoyable in the rain but finding a place to put my umbrella was difficult. I would love to return and enjoy it in the sunlight!
  • Beautiful castle, amazing architecture. Brings the image of Shogun tele-series to mind.
