Wonderful Wakayama

Lying just down the coast from Osaka, Wakayama is a lesser known Japanese destination just waiting to be discovered. If you enjoy pretty castles, kitsch theme parks or tasty seafood, then this city should be added to your itinerary ASAP.

The most popular attraction in Wakayama is the city’s classic castle, that watches over the city from its hilltop perch. As for fresh seafood, make sure to stop at Kuroshio Market. Wakayama is also the gateway to the nearby island of Tomogashima, which boasts ruins and a scenic lighthouse.
