Excellent museum, wish there was more English there. Great view spot
Nice sea just outside the place and good place to eat, next door.
Reviewed:2018/07/02 休日のお昼は、いっぱいです
道の駅のキラメッセ室戸の隣にあります。クジラを売りにしましたレストランです。休日のランチタイムの時間帯は、大人気で大混雑ですから、かなりの待ち時間は必至です。時間の余裕を持って行かれることを、お勧めします。

龍馬パスポートのスタンプゲットする為に鯨館に行きました。
以前と代わりおしゃれな館内にお土産も豊富で、とても綺麗になりました。

          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.
