Kochi Yosakoi Joho Koryukan高知よさこい情報交流館

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

The Kochi Yosakoi Joho Koryukan is a museum that showcases the history and appeal of the Yosakoi Festival, which was founded in 1954. There is a “Yosakoi Theatre” with a 150-inch large-screen display showing how the Yosakoi Festival has developed over time, which really makes visitors feel as though they are watching the Festival in real life, along with a “Yosakoi Experience Corner” where visitors can try on the costumes worn by Yosakoi Festival dancers. Both adults and children will enjoy a visit here.

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.
