DETAILED ITINERARY

We start off in Kochi. After picking you up in one of our luxurious private vehicles, we will drive you through the three destinations of your choice.

 

Option 01: Godaisan Observatory

Godaisan Observatory Kochi Essentials Private Package Tour

Godaisan is a small mountain to the east of Kochi’s downtown. It was named after a Chinese mountain by Buddhist priests visiting from China. This observatory is located on the small Mt. Godaisan just outside of Kochi City. From here, you can get a full view of a panorama merging nature with the city including Kochi Harbor and the Kagami River. The beauty of its nightscape from the evening hours has earned praise as Kochi’s premier night view.

 

Option 02: Chikurinji temple

Chikurinji Temple Kochi Essentials Private Package Tour

The same visiting priests established Chikurinji Temple on Godaisan, which has since become an important stop on the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Number 31 of the 88 temples along the pilgrimage, Chikurinji attracts pilgrims as well as students because of its reputation as a scholastic institution.

 

Option 03: Ryugado Cave

Ryugado Cave Kochi Essentials Private Package Tour

Located in Mt. Sampo, Ryugado Stalactite Cave is one of the biggest three of its kind in Japan. Thought to be some 150,000,000 years old, this magical and mystical limestone cave was designated a national natural monument in 1934 thanks to its spectacular stalactite formations as well as the 100 or so animal species that dwell there, including bats, shrimps and crabs. Visitors can venture 1 km into the cave along the main route, about a quarter of the entire cave.

Entrance fee (separate from tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
Adult: JPY1100 per person / Children under 15: JPY700 per person / Children under 12: JPY550 per person

 

Option 04: Katsurahama Beach

Katsurahama Beach Kochi Essentials Private Package Tour

The beach is one of the most picturesque spots in Kochi Prefecture. Located at the entrance to Urado Bay, it stretches in an arc between Cape Ryuzu and Cape Ryuo. A deep green pine grove behind the coast, five-colored beach gravel and the azure ocean chime perfectly with one another like a miniature garden to produce a stunning landscape. The beach has been known since ancient times as a popular venue for viewing the moon.

 

Option 05: The Museum of Sakamoto Ryoma

The Museum of Sakamoto Ryoma Kochi Essentials Private Package Tour

Sakamoto was one of the architects of modern Japan. He was instrumental in negotiating an alliance between the Choshu and Satsuma clans that helped to bring an end to Japan’s feudal age in 1868. The Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum stands on the hill above the beach.

Entrance fee (separate from tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
Adult: JPY700 per person (during special exhibitions) /  JPY490 per person (between special exhibitions)

 

Option 06: Kochi Castle

Kochi Castle Kochi Essentials Private Package Tour

Kochi Castle is one of just twelve Japanese castles to have survived the fires, wars and other catastrophes of the post feudal age. It was first constructed between 1601 and 1611, but most of its main buildings date from 1748 when they were reconstructed after a fire.
