Kochi prefecture (高知県 Kochi-ken ) is on the Japanese island of Shikoku.
Kochi was formerly known as Tosa (土佐).
- Kochi — The prefectural capital
- Kubokawa — Famous for beef
- Nankoku — A neighboring city of Kochi known for its long-tailed roosters
- Toyo Cho — Famous for citrus, surfing, and Shirahama beach.
The local specialty is katsuo no tataki, bonito quickly grilled under high heat so the surface is cooked but the inside is still raw.
17 sake breweries in Kochi make Tosa Space Sake (土佐宇宙酒 Tosa uchūshu), prepared with yeast that was taken into space for ten days and back aboard a Soyuz rocket in 2005, so be sure to sample some for a taste experience that is out of this world.
