Named after Mt. Kumgang, a Place of Scenic Beauty on the Korean Peninsula, this picturesque scenery features a series of precipitous cliffs. The sight of the huge rocks rising perpendicularly almost like a pyramid with raging waves smashing against the cliffs makes for a powerful sight. The Japan-U.S. Friendship Memorial Museum on the premises has displays of photos and a diorama which tell about the time when two US merchant ships, the Lady Washington and the Grace, landed at Oshima.

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.
