    名物、あかうしのランチを頂きました。黒毛和牛のイメージが強過ぎるせいか、あかうしは淡白と思いがちですが(私だけか?)、食してみれば俗に言う濃厚で脂が良くのっています。自分で焼きながら食べるので、食べるペースの遅い私でも好みの焼き具合でいただけます。景色も、私の行ったときは水枯れしていましたが、普段なら美しい水面を眺めながらの食事が可能でしよう。

The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
