Split into two parts by the Kinokawa River, the city of Wakayama stands nestled in the eponymous plain, overlooked by a historic hilltop castle that was rebuilt after World War II.
Get out of town with these interesting Wakayama side-trips: Nara (Nara Park, Todai-ji Temple, & more) and Koya-cho (Mt. Koya, Koyasan Danjo Garan, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Wakayama Castle, examine the collection at Kao Eco Lab Museum, and delve into the distant past at Kii Fudoki No Oka Museum of Archaeology and Folklore.

In October, daytime highs in Wakayama are 26°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
