Kansai's Lost City

Known as a prominent medieval seaport, and for its keyhole burial mounds and Samurai swords, the bayside city of Sakai boasts plenty of attractions.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Fri): indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at some of the top local onsens, contemplate the long history of Wakayama Castle, and then revel in the low prices at Rinku Premium Outlets. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tenkawa Daibenzai Tensha, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kongobu-ji Temple, then don't miss a visit to Koyasan Danjo Garan, and finally contemplate the long history of Koyasan Choishi Michi.
