This is the pacific ocean. It was a great beauty.
This is the beach at the niyodo river estuary. I think you can do surfing here, especially at the point where the waters meet, but we came at the wrong time of day for that. The beach is vast and empty.
Even though the water is flat the sea still held a lot of power.
This is the bit where the river meets the sea.
Its the Tosa Dog Museum. This area is famous for two things, those dogs and a famous local samurai called Sakamoto Ryoma.
Sakamoto Ryoma statue. The local accent is supposed to sound like him (or any general samurai).
Katsurahama beach. It says no swimming but i dont know why.
lovely pacific ocean.
If you talk about living on the Kochi coastline lots of people mention the possibility of a tsunami. Its a small risk, but a horrible one. I haven’t made up my mind.
