From forests and rivers to the mighty Pacific and rugged sacred shore lines.
Kochi Prefecture is one of those remote areas of Japan that even many Japanese haven't visited. It's best known for its subtropical climate, rural food producers, and untouched nature - particularly its rivers and mountains. This 3-night, 4-day tour takes you to three iconic farm stays or similar countryside "stay" experiences, and with the freedom of a rental car, a potpourri of sights and things to do each day before arriving at your lodging. All activities are optional and generally will be free or self-pay on the spot. We will do all the reservations for you though. Each farm/home stay has been chosen so that you can walk around the area and soak up the atmosphere of being in a genuine rural village. You'll meet the friendly locals who, while they may not speak much English, will make up with smiles and accommodating body language. And of course if there is ever a pressing communication need, our Support Desk is just a chat or phone call away. After our carefully designed Eastern Kochi Farm Stays tour, we are sure you will want to come back for a more in-depth experience.
