Shikoku Stonewall Tour 1st Stop: Kochi prefecture

For four consecutive months we are having a Stonewall event in each prefecture. In July we had our first stop, Kochi-prefecture. Stonewall contacted some enthusiastic JETs residing in Kochi and the rest was history (hey that rhymes!). On that day, we combined bowling, fine dining at a great burger restaurant, and the exploration of Hirome Ichiba (famous open food market). As the night winded down we visited a friendly gar bar in the area. The owner was nice, friendly, and supplied us with food, plus a nice environment to hang out. The weekend’s success tasted as good as the takaki (seared tuna well-known in kochi)😗.

Thank you to Casey, Erin, and Rowan for making such a fun Stonewall Kochi event possible! ANYone is welcome to our next event; whether you are part of the LGBT community or a noble ally, please come!
