    Wakayama Nishimuro-gun Shirahamacho Katata 1475

    JR西日本の遊び心が素晴らしい。小さな駅ですが、ホームから窓ガラスにパンダ模様なのですぐわかります。白浜観光に役立つパンフレットが一杯。でも、長居するとバスに乗り遅れるので、さっと見て駅外のバス乗り場へ。バスチケットを買って並びましょう。

Wakayama Areas

around-area-map

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.
