Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum


Kochi is justly proud of its most famous son, Sakamoto Ryoma. A bold political reformer on the late 19th century, Sakamoto was an instrumental figure in the political revolution that led to the Meiji Restoration of 1868. His life and work are commemorated in this museum located on a bluff overlooking the boundless Pacific Ocean.
