#1 of 100 in Nature in Shikoku

A small shrine on top of a jutting rocky cliff offers scenic views of the crescent-shaped beach and the thunderous waves crashing against its shores. View the statue of Ryoma Sakamoto, a famous Kochi samurai, have a picnic, or visit the small museum and aquarium. Swimming is prohibited on the beach, due to the dangerously strong currents.

  • Have had the weather was beautiful anyway. The sea is blue. From looking at the bronze statue of ryoma Sakamoto, went down to the beach. At first when you have glades trail trail is well maintained, so whether or not clean the beach from a roped-off? It is as I thought. However, looking at the, such as rock and visible in the shape of a turtle, because it does not say such a thing, said if other people also poured in. And walking along the water's edge were washed and clean pebbles of pale green, has been picked to commemorate.

  • The prospect of the beach is nice from the small hill. Empty Beach, concrete way drum around, where you can go and admire the distant beach. Swim or lie on the sand or play prohibited. Yes, and then the many shops with stuff or eating.

  • A nice beach where... you are not allowed to swim! Hey, come on Japan. The shrine is cute. it's a Pokemon Stop it seem so many people can be found there playing.
  • The beech is good because it's accessible from Kochi city, but there are far better beeches to visit either to the east or west of Kochi prefecture. Though to get them requires a car.
  • Beautiful beach and ocean view. Strong currents so no swimming or sunbathing.
  • Used to came here many years ago. It was a quiet beach with decent view.
  • Beautiful location!
