    "An area with numerous picturesque spots which was designated a national Place of Scenic Beauty in 2010. For 1,300 years, it has inspired the creation of countless great literary and artistic works, including waka poetry by Yamabe no Akahito, an early Nara period poet still praised today and considered one of the ""36 Immortals of Poetry."" It has also been visited by various great personages throughout the ages like the mighty samurai lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi, shogun Tokugawa Yorinobu, and renowned author Natsume Soseki. Even today, unending steams of people come here seeking its beauty.

    This is an area that is famous for producing peaches just about a 20-minute walk from the Shimoisaka Station on the JR Wakayama Line. It is called Togenkyo (meaning paradise) because the area is filled with the perfume of peach blossoms from late March to early April. This area is located along south bank of the Kinokawa River. It is said in this area one may take in 100,000 peach trees in one glance, and it has been selected as one of 100 Best Aromatic Landscapes by Ministry of the Environment . The peaches grown in sandy soil with ideal watershedding conditions in this warm climate are painstakingly harvested and sold under the brand of Arakawa Peaches and distributed all over Japan.

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.
