Tosa Token Center

The region of Kochi has a long-standing tradition of fighting dogs. Near Katshurahama beach, the Tosa Token Center stages Tosa dog fights in season. The Tosa is a ferocious short-haired dog with jaws of steel that can weigh up to 100kg. Every year, dozens of breeders enter their champion dogs into tournaments. The fights take place in an arena according to rules that are very similar to those used for sumo wrestling matches.
