Travel to just about every region of the country and whether you intend it or not, you will come across old feudal castles dating back to the Edo Era or even further back in history. Most of these intricate structures are not all original, but if you are planning a trip to Kochi, the capital of the old Tosa region, rest assured that its castle is one of the 12 originals remaining in the country. In fact, in several ways, it is one of the most original ones and here we’re going to walk you through it.

To reach Kochi Castle you need to head the heart of the city. This historic beauty was built back in 1611 and sits today atop Otakasa Hill and in between the Enokuchi and Kagami rivers. If you want to enjoy unsurpassed city views as well as a walk back into history, then this should be at the top of your sightseeing list while in Kochi City.
