Welcome to Ikumi
There's not much to Ikumi Beach (生見), on the Kōchi side of the prefectural border with Tokushima. Basically, there is a lovely beach with waves that attract surfers from all over Japan, some good budget accommodation, a few eateries that won't break the bank, and a surf shop or two. That said, if you are into a relaxed day or two looking at a different side of Japan, Ikumi is a great place to hang out. Lie back on the beach and enjoy the sun, catch a few waves, soak in the sea, thumb through surf magazines and enjoy a cool beverage – or two!
