Blue skies, tranquil sea, and warm people are what our rider encounters as he travels through Kochi Prefecture. First, to a scenic coastline popular among cyclists where he enjoys seared Katsuo, a local specialty. In the mountains, he meets friendly people playing field games in mud! And a washi paper craftsman demonstrates the beauty of mountain living. After riding along the Shimanto River, he gets a feel for an old pilgrimage known as the Henro. Join us on our journey through Kochi.
