Wakayama

— 8 nights
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. On a tour of Wakayama, you'll have the chance to take day trips to the prefecture's numerous natural and historic sights, as the town has good connections and also provides easy access to Osaka and Nara.
Change things up with these side-trips from Wakayama: Miyama no Sato Shinrin Park (in Hidakagawa-cho), Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin, Mt. Koya, &more) and Nara (Nara Park, Todai-ji Temple, &more). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Wakayama Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wakaura Tenmangu, examine the collection at Kao Eco Lab Museum, and admire the masterpieces at Awaji Oiso Artyama.
