SpotKochi Castle

After Yamanouchi Kazutoyo (1546-1605) became the lord of the Tosa domain in 1601, the city started to develop as a castle town of Kochi Castle in the Tosa domain. Kochi Castle, located in the center of the city, began to be constructed in 1601 and was mostly completed in 1603. The disastrous fire of 1727 destroyed much of the fortress except Ote-mon Gate. But, by 1753 it was restored to its original style. Since then, it has survived several crises such as natural disasters and the Pacific War and has kept its beautiful figure down to the present day. On Sundays, a guided tour in English is available.
