Kōchi is the capital city of Kōchi Prefecture located on the island of Shikoku in Japan.Kōchi is the main city of the prefecture with over 40% of its population. As of May 31, 2008, the city has an estimated population of 340,515 and a population density of 1,100 persons per km2. The total area is 309.22 km2. A symbol of the city is its most famous dish, katsuo tataki, made by lightly searing and seasoning tuna.HistoryThe river plain now containing the city centre was originally settled as a castle town around the seat of the lords of Tosa Province, Kōchi Castle. The castle site was chosen by Lord Yamauchi Kazutoyo in 1601. The city takes its name from that of the castle. As the centre of administration for the province, and the prefecture which succeeded it, the town rapidly grew to become the largest settlement of the region.During the time of the Meiji Restoration, Kōchi became famous as a centre of pro-imperial ideology, and later for incubating democratic and human rights movements.The city was incorporated on April 1, 1889.Tram service began in the city on May 2, 1904, and the city was connected to the national rail network on November 12, 1951.
