  • We were on a cruise and took a short taxi ride to the gardens from the cruise port. We didn't know what to expect but we were not at all disappointed with our visit. The Gardens replicate the wide var...  more »
  • "Tosa plant ecological Garden" from the first parking lot entrance through main, exhibit than what was done well. Botanical Garden of the prefectural Makino-Tomitaro name that bears had come so far, but the there is a favorite genre was expected. By buying a ticket. Said today that free screenings of movies. '[NULL] "Shifting documentary film screenings in Tokyo at chinzan shifting ' live 95 minutes, in the folk culture Institute in 1977 filmmaking, the movie, this year's exhibition" "Acne" and the Kochi life old fashioned corn "that along the theme of. Ticket distribution will begin in 30 minutes, and seems to be in the next 40 minutes after screening. I didn't know was starting another line so joined the column, but nowadays if any cut corn Ethnobotanical value has. Movie is 50-for 60 years now, Jin Haruno-Cho Tokyo at chinzan record of shifting cultivation destroyed long ago, had done well in its own way. But "Kochi lives Acne" in wonder as the Botanic Gardens to often put the brochure for the Botanical Garden in. I wonder if no Museum on the history of anthropology, folklore and modern people in Kochi Prefecture. But it seems eager to the Edo era. During the day I had went to a restaurant. Write the name in order to wait for it. To increase availability and called everyone. Name after 30 minutes and was called was almost in one page. Then is-or what would be difficult at 30, taking orders from someone shalt's clerk would, no one ordered food arrive and are frustrated that some calm in. If you go to look after more than 30 minutes, over the counter finished dishes filled with was. In a Word, thanks to our competence in the issue you have wasted time more than 4 hours. But it is a kind of Appendix to find out soon enough. It's exhibiting plants are unreliable. It may have disappeared who perhaps first by involved professionals, was a splendid Botanical Garden seems to understand, Botany. It seems to not only teach you like to decorate flower regardless of Botany, gardening, grow clean. Kochi University, Faculty of science and Faculty of pharmaceutical sciences is no wonder. Even where school of pharmacy have little classic herb herb garden. Lost location several times. No suitable signs. Illustrated map of the leaf is placed at the entrance to useless. Some might be in size and number and to devise. Entrance fee is 720 yen (high school students and younger free). Just go far away from the car and would be great, but once should be seen. So if you live in the neighborhood, if well maintained around 1 km or so (went to the Hall of Fame, once out from the South Gate at the main gate towards the triangle) as the annual entrance pass (2880 yen) would be appropriate. Don't forget your lunch.

  • You can feel free to go personal travel because it may be a little distance from the city, buses on a regular basis. The entrance building is very beautiful. So to spend half a day or more a in is very large. Sorry was not too slowly because I visited during the intense summer sun. We introduced episode loving to Tomitaro Makino cute pictures and plants in the exhibition rooms. This is where you can find that here was once a nice person along with the plants to enjoy.
