Kochi Prefecture comprises the southwestern part of the island of Shikoku, facing the Pacific Ocean. It is the largest but least populous of Shikoku's four prefectures. Most of the province is mountainous, and in only a few areas such as around Kochi and Nakamura is there a coastal plain. Kochi is famous for its many rivers.
