KONAN
  • HISTORY
  • MUSEUMS / GALLERIES

The town of Konan (Kochi Prefecture) encompasses several small villages (including Akaoka, Noichi and Yasu) containing a splendid mix of history, culture and nature.
The cluttered streets of Akaoka make for a pleasant stroll, and fans of Japanese art will be delighted with the opportunity to see up close the distinctive works of Ekin. The vast Actland complex in Noichi offers a family day out, with rides, games and museums that particularly focus on Kochi’s ubiquitous historical hero, Ryoma Sakamoto. Visitors to Yasu can relax, surrounded by the countryside and the ocean.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
