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. Besides visiting and enjoying the view from the castle keep, you can check out the local restaurants, stroll the port area and its fish markets, and sample Wakayama's famous "umeboshi," or salted plums. Make your own Wakayama vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Japan vacation tool.
