    "This is the oldest diving facility in Shirahama, right off the beach, a 30-minute drive via National Route 42 from the Nanki Tanabe Interchange of the Hanwa Expressway. Due to the influence of the Kuroshio Current, the sea around Shirahama is very clear, and diving is enjoyable year-round. The Diving Experience Course, which lets beginners walk around underwater without worries, is highly recommended. Holders of a C-class diving license can enjoy a ""fun dive"" with a guide.

Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
