Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
This is the sequel of my past trip to Kōchi in Shikoku Island.
If you haven't read Part 1, please take a look first.
This time I'll show you what the seaside area is like.
Most touist visiting Kōchi will visiting this area.
There is a famous shore called "Katsura-hama" (桂浜).
This is so beautiful, isn't it?
This will be the most popular photo spot in Kōchi.
Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto!
The weather was too nice at that time and it was backlight...
He was a samurai in the end of Edo period, and known as a prominent political activist.
As murdered at the age of 31, it ironially makes him popular over generations.
I saw many old and young taking a picture around the statue.
Let me introduce my favorite spot in this area.
It is TOSA DOG MUSEUM.
Do you know TOSA DOG?
As you can see from the photo above, it is the strongest dog in Japan.
Tosa dog is well known for "TOH-KEN", dog fighting.
It has long history, and the fight?has still been held in a very traditional way.
In this museum, you can also see many Tosa dog puppies!
Actually, it was my main purpose to visit this spot.
If you feel scared to see the fight, it is still worth to visiting there for this petting park.
If you have chance to visit Kōchi, don't miss Katsura-hama!
See you around^^
