Castelo de Kochi, Kochi
(4.4/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Location often and learn about the history, such as strict class system of the Tosa clan's Castle overlooking the beautiful high streets before one's eyes is so nice.

  • Annals and the Tower everywhere feel that it really building a free so it is safe now to worry about. When I did that many tourists who did not. Different views from on high is normal now, but at the time of trying, is history can be felt.

  • 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.
