Explore Japan’s Countryside: 8 Beautiful Places To Visit In Kochi Prefecture

Get to know the rural side of Japan

Yes, it's true; the Weekender team found ourselves in Japan once again! After exploring Central Japan, Okinawa, and Western Japan, we set out on a rather different adventure this time. We took the Japanese domestic ANA airlines to Kochi Prefecture.

One of the four prefectures in Shikoku Island, Kochi abounds in farms and coastal towns facing the vast Pacific Ocean. With a small population and much fewer tourists compared to other Japanese cities, the natural landscapes and historic remains in Kochi are very well-preserved in their beautiful, original state. Not to mention the food is incredibly fresh and unforgettable. Here are some of our favourite spots that you have to visit when in Kochi.

7. Muroto Dolphins Centre

A place in Muroto city that always delights the whole family is Muroto Dolphins Centre. Who wouldn’t have a great time playing with dolphins? The dolphins have a wide open space to move freely, and there are various programs that invite you to interact with the creatures in so many different ways. You could touch and feed them, watch them swim, or even swim with them in the water. We were so enraptured by the joy of the adorable creatures, we didn’t want to leave!
