Ashizuri-Uwakai National Park足摺宇和海国立公園
This park, established in 1972 is the 26th national park of Japan and features mild and beautiful subaquatic scenery and varied coastal scenery. Due to the unique climate of the mountainous region located inland which is influenced by the Kuroshio Current, it is possible to see a wide range of vegetation distribution from warm-temperate to cold-temperature zone in the area. Within the region is Kashiwajima Island known as a “sacred place for diving” as well as Usubae known for its famous landscape sights and fishing, as well as Japan’s foremost canyoning spot Nametoko Gorge. There are many visitors throughout the year enjoying the leisure activities of the area.

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.
