Kochi Prefecture Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum Born in Tosa, Ryoma Sakamoto (1835 - 1867) was active at the end of the Edo period, when Japan was striving to become a modern nation. Although he fell before achieving his goals, there is no doubt that his efforts to realize the Satsuma-Choshu Alliance and the Taisei-hokan (formal restoration of political authority to the Emperor) brought about the birth of a new Japan. This museum is involved in the research of Ryoma Sakamoto and the Meiji Restoration, as well as the gathering, preservation, and display of related documents and materials. Through special exhibits and educational projects, we hope to help people learn more about and become familiar with Ryoma Sakamoto.

The museum is dedicated to the memory of Sakamoto Ryoma however, it appears to be designed basically for Japanese speakers (and readers) as little information is provided in English. There is a reconstruction of the room where Ryoma and his companion where assassinated complete with...More

I decided to go to the museum for many reasons. The first one is because I like the Japanese culture and history, especially the shogun/samurai period. There you can find a lot of documents about Sakamoto Ryoma but unless you can read old Japanese paper,...More

Unfortunately most of the museum was in Japanese, other than that it is quite small, although there is a nice view from the top floor. They also have free wifi. We visited as part of a Kochi Castle trip from Princess Cruises and I think...More

Not really worth spending too much time here unless you're super interested but you do get a good level of backstory around Satamotos part in the Meiji restoration.

It was just average for us as the museum is focused on letters and newspaper articles, all in Japanese. So if you can't read Japanese you won't get much out of it. There is an English pamphlet available but it won't give you a deeper...More
