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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Wakayama: Miyama no Sato Shinrin Park (in Hidakagawa-cho), Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin, Mt. Koya, & more) and Nara (Nara Park, Todai-ji Temple, & more). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Wakayama Castle, contemplate the long history of The Kuzuharas House, delve into the distant past at Kii Fudoki No Oka Museum of Archaeology and Folklore, and explore the fascinating underground world of Toro Cave.
