Godai-san (Mt. Godai)五台山


Located in the southeastern part of Kochi City, Godai-san (Mt. Godai) is a 146-meter-high hill that is famous for its flowers. It looks out over Urado Bay; according to legend, the name “Godai-san” was given to the hill by the monk Gyoki, after the famous holy mountain Wutai-shan in China. The observation platform on the summit of the hill affords marvelous views of both Kochi City and Urado Bay. At the foot of the hill are located the Chikurin-ji Temple (which is the 31st temple visited on the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage), the Gyuko-ji Temple, and the Kochi Prefectural Makino Botanical Garden. Godai-san is situated around 21 minutes by bus from Kochi Station; get off at the Godai-san Observation Platform stop.

          Kochi Main Areas


          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.
