Yusuhara: Kochi's Quaint Art Town

Yusuhara is a small town in Kochi located in between mountains and holds a population of less than 4000 people. It touts itself as the town above the clouds, and is also known for its eco-friendliness. What this amounts to is a friendly town where everyone seems to know and greet each other everywhere, a town that retires home before it gets dark, and a quiet and peaceful town, all in all providing for a quaint Japanese town experience that would likely surprise you.

Return To Kochi

Recently presented with the opportunity to extend my stay in western Japan after a short business trip to Osaka, I chose to venture to Shikoku, the smallest of Japan’s 4 main islands and, until fairly recently, certainly the most remote. At the suggestion of a close friend, I was persuaded to visit Kochi, which is the principal city in the prefecture of the same name.

The last pristine river - Shimanto!

Shimanto River is known as one of Japan’s fresh water rivers.
Explore the charm and highlights of Shimanto River calmly and gently just as the freshwaters over its surface.
