Immerse Yourself in Art and History: Unveiling Tokyo's Museum at the Imperial Palace - Treasures of the Imperial Family at Sannomaru Shozokan

Usubae Observatory

Japan, Matsuousubae, Tosashimizu City, Kochi Prefecture 787-0316

It is said to be the first place in the Japanese archipelago where the Kuroshio Current comes in contact, and the only coast where you can see the flow of the Kuroshio Current. The rocky area is shaped like a mortar, and the Kuroshio Current appears to swirl around it, so it was named 'Usubae'. There are observatories and lighthouses on the way to Ryugu Shrine, where you can enjoy the magnificent Pacific Ocean. This area is also known for surf fishing and was used as a filming location for "Tsuribaka Nisshi".
