KOCHI, JAPAN — WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17: 8am – 5pm

Spend a day in “Hometown, Japan” and experience Kochi’s low-key charms. The city has its strong historical legacy and craft heritage of tosa washi paper. But one of the local sea cape’s Japanese names means “blessed with great nature” and it is the Kochi area’s hot springs, gorges, streams, and abundant maples and azaleas that are treasured by locals and visitors alike.
