STORY

The Chugei region is located in the region formerly known as Tosa, in present-day Kochi Prefecture, and was once home to the largest forestry railway network in Western Japan.
The region focused on the planting of yuzu (citrus junos) trees to replace the forestry industry and has become the largest producer of this citrus variety in Japan.
Formerly a railroad used for transporting timber, it was reborn as the Yuzu Road and is now surrounded by beautiful orchards.
Throughout the year, the orchards reflect the changing of the seasons and display colourful scenes from the delicate blooming white flowers, to deep green leaves, and finally the rich yellow of the ripening fruit.
Travelers to the Chugei region will be able to enjoy the beautiful citrus scenery along with the distinctive local cuisine found in such delicacies as yuzu sushi.
