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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Wakayama: Nara (Nara Park, Todai-ji Temple, & more), Koya-cho (Ryusen-in Temple, Koyasan Okunoin, & more) and Katsuragi Highlands (in Gose). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Wakayama Castle, go for a walk through Nakasuji Family Former Residence, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wakaura Tenmangu, and contemplate the long history of Site of Miyama Batttery.
