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.
