Review of John Manjiro Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/09/20 予想より小さい家
こから黒潮に流されて漂流して生きて戻れたと思うと凄いなと実感!
しかし万次郎が住んでいた家が想像よりも小さく住みづらいかと感じました。
Reviewed:2019/09/02 内容は濃い
海辺にある小さな資料館ですが漂流から捕鯨船に拾われゴールドラッシュして日本に戻って来て幕府迄進む濃い内容を見れます。
駐車場は広いです。
館内の食事所は時間が早いとやってません。
Reviewed:2019/07/24 ジョン万次郎のゆかりの地の資料館
ジョン万次郎のゆかりの地で、ジョン万次郎の生涯にわたる生きざまや、それにまつわる歴史的背景、影響などがよくわかる資料館でした。
入館料は400円でした。

          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.
