Because if you walk to all the attractions, it can take a while to find them all. Maps are provided and there are road signs, but it is still confusing. I would love to go back to this island with a mountain bike, and spend the better part of a day there. Also the ferry timetable is every two hours, so I found myself rushing around. If you get lost on the island, you will miss the next ferry back. It is best to spend at least four hours on this island, but I was able to see some of the major sites. There is also some old structures not mentioned on the tourist ads, but it's quite fascinating to see the ruins of this old fortress. When I visited in March it was quite cold and windy, so dress appropriately. Also quite surprising for Japan, there is NO food on the island, no gift shop, nothing! So bring snacks. You can get quite hungry with all the hiking. Although there is a hostel type accomodation which was closed when I visited. I think it's only open during the summer.

The Wakayama castle is just located in the city center.I went to the castle on foot.Just 15 mins.The city is very small and quiet.The entry fee was just 400Yen.Took the stairs and reached the castle very easily.The castle actually looks like a museum.I did learn some history here about Japan.I went to the highest deck of the castle and took a bird's view for the whole city.That was wonderful even it was raining.There is a nice garden just near the castle.It is worthy your visiting.

This jinja is by the sea with long scenic drive along coast from ang through Kansai airport. Its uniqueness is the collections of dolls in the shrine complexes with zoning: japanese costume boy and girl dolls, Tanuki( the raccoons), Gero ( frogs), white foxes, zodiac animals. There is local store selling local products , fresh from sea.

Big and very busy service area. The restaurants are full and you have to wait for a table. So consider buying some snacks and drinks instead. A good break nontheless and there is plenty to buy.

We came on this beautiful garden in the grounds of the Wakayama Castle by chance and almost didn't go in, because the sign mentioned 460 yen.
Signposts nearby use the name "Nishinomaru Teien" instead of "Momijidani Teien".
Admission is free.
This garden has it all - a pond (really part of the castle's moat), a spring, Japanese maples, paths wandering up the hillside, a teahouse, big rocks and many turtles in the pond. High above is the castle, the borrowed scenery that extends the view of a traditional Japanese garden.
We were there on April 16, when a few cherry blossoms remained as well as bright azaleas among the green. Autumn would be another beautiful time to visit.
We've enjoyed Gardens all over Honshu, and this is a new favorite.

I have never seen a temple with steep, crude stone stairs like this one. Midway up, you feel you could fall backwards. Magnificent view at the top. Another one of the underrated tourist attractions you will find in Wakayama City, just 45' by train from Kansai Airport.

50 minutes from Kansai International Airport (Osaka) by car. The largest number of tuna cutting shows in Japan. The fattiest part of tuna (Otoro) sushi is must-eat in this market. It's a kind of tourist seafood market. At the seaside BBQ area, you can grill & eat all the seafood purchased in Kuroshio Market. Some of the seafood can be prepared as Sashimi or steamed/boiled, free of charge.
We visited the fish market located inside the Marina City island in Wakayama. Free grills for trials are available for free in some of the particular restaurants / shops. The fish was really fresh and tasty. There are lots of different seafood related dry foods to purchase in the shops, and the foods were good too. Overall a very relaxing and nice experience in this fish market.
