Kaiyodo Hobby Museum Shimanto is a museum housed in the gymnasium of the former Utsuigawa Elementary School which closed in 2009. There are many pieces on display such as Kaiyodo’s world famous figures, plastic models and garage kits. The huge Catalan ship is an impressive sight.

It was such a great experience to visit the place.. and the title of this review? yes, these were just few words from the Owner of the Museum that melted my heart. We had a face to face encounter...

四万十川沿いの山奥にある博物館。
ナビに従い進むも段々と山深くなり着くまでが心配と不安に駆られます。
館内には懐かしい模型が数多く展示されていて大人になっても消えない子供心を呼び起こしてくれます。懐かしい展示物も多く時間が過ぎるのがあっという間でした。

          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.
