"Located an approximately 50-minute drive from the Shimantocho-Chuo Interchange on the Kochi Expressway, this beach has sand that stretches for about four kilometers and is about 200 meter wide. Also known as Tsukimigahama, it has been selected as one of the Japan's 100 Best Beaches. Many events are held here, such as the ""T-shirt Art Exhibition"", in which the sandy beach itself is regarded as a museum and about 1,000 t-shirts are exhibited on the sandy beach. With the sandy beach in the background, there is a Japanese black pine forest called ""Irino Matsubara"" and a camping ground, and it is full of tourists who come to enjoy swimming and surfing in the summer."

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.
