#1 of 10 in Museums in Kochi
History Museum Museum
Built on castle grounds, The Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum displays artifacts and documents by Sakamoto Ryoma, a prominent figure of the Meiji Restoration. The exterior's geometric shape and large glass windows exude a contemporary ambiance. Inside, take a closer look at the documents, photographs, and correspondence of Ryoma and his contemporaries from the turbulent period of the 19th century. Don't miss the chance to visit the terrace, from which a vista of vast ocean extends across the horizon. Bear in mind that most of the info boards are in Japanese, while the English booklets are quite brief.
