Katsurahama Aquarium桂浜水族館


You’ll find this aquarium in the wonderfully scenic Katsurahama seashore in Kochi Prefecture. It has been around for over 70 years. Approximately 250 species of fish and marine wildlife can be found here, with a focus on rare fish and schools of Japanese lates that make their home in Tosa Bay. Visitors can also feed sea turtles and penguins, get close and personal with clownfish and doctorfish, watch a sea lion show, and enjoy several other activities and events throughout the year.

          Kochi 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.
