Haruno Athletic Park

   This must be Kochi’s largest athletic park. Located in former Haruno Town, it boasts various facilities for sports, such as a stadium, track and field facilities, a big gymnasium, tennis courts, a shooting range, and a swimming pool.
   Many competitions are held year-round, and professional baseball and soccer teams base themselves here for boot camp style training. Not only can you enjoy playing and watching sport here, but there is also a playground for children. There are walking paths, a lookout that commands a view over the Pacific Ocean and accommodation facilities.

   From the downtown of Kochi City, it takes about 25 minutes by car, or a 500-yen bus-ride to get there. There is a hot spring, 'Haruno noYu' nearby, so after playing sport, you can go there to relax.
