Kochi Port(area:SHIKOKU/KOCHI)

Spring Winter

Located in central Kochi, the Kochi Port has functioned as an important hub for marine traffic between the Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe area and South Shikoku since olden times. In 1951 it was designated as a major port. In March 1998, Kochi New Port was partially opened in the Misato area as an international trade terminal on the Pacific. On May 23,2014,the new main berth started its operations. Since the opening, both domestic and international cruises have called at our port.
There are famous tourist spots near the Kochi Port, including Kochi Castle and Katsurahama Beach. If you go a little further, you can visit Cape Muroto in the east, and near Kochi City there are many tourist spots rich in natural beauty like the Niyodo River, which is called a miraculous clear stream. Also awaiting you are many delicious foods from nature's bounty, such as tataki or seared bonito.
