    Wakayama Iwade-shi Kawashiri 71-5

Guests can enjoy an abundance of creative and appealing dishes prepared by the restaurant's Italian-trained owner-chef with natural ingredients such as vegetables and herbs grown in its own garden.

    Wakayama Pref. Tanabeshi Kamiyashiki 2-6-7
    You’ll find this bread and pasta cafe in Kamiyashiki, Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture, renovated from a stone-built, Western-style building built in 1949 that was used as a police station. There’s a cafe on the first floor and an eating area on the second floor, and the smell of freshly baked bread wafts through the whole shop. Popular items include the healthy bread that uses Hokkaido-grown wheat and marine yeast and the seasonal pasta lunch made with vegetables produced in the suburbs, fish, and more. You’ll also find soft cheese souffle, handmade sweets, and more.

    題名の通りなのですが、本日のケーキとお茶とで420円と激安でした。普通においしかったので、また利用したいと思います。パンも大きなメロンパンなど3-4つ入って200円でした。外観もインスタ映えすると思います。

    Wakayama Hashimoto-shi Nishihata 489-1
    This cafe is located a 15-minute drive from Hashimoto Station on the JR Wakayama Line and the Nankai Koya Line or from Hashimoto Interchange on the Keinawa Expressway. The open cafe is situated on a 300 meter-high elevated spot overlooking Hashimoto City. Its centerpieces are its brick oven and its traditional sunken hearth. There is an amusing mismatch between the cafe's western-style exterior and cuisine and its quintessentially Japanese-style interior. The pizzas baked in the cafe's brick oven are chewy on the inside and crispy and fragrant on the outside. We also recommend their brick oven grilled spring chicken, with its crispy skin and juicy meat, as well as their brick oven baked red snapper in salt crust, which is cooked and served whole (These items must be ordered in advance.).

    車の運転初級者ではなかなかたどり着けない場所にありました。何より駐車の場所があまりないので予約は必須です。ピザは薄皮のパリパリで美味しかったですが、一枚ずつ焼いてるようで?時間はかかりました。

Wakayama Areas

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.
