Kotonoura Onzan Souen琴ノ浦温山荘園
This cottage garden was erected by Chojiro Nitta, the founder of Nitta Corporation, from the start of the Taisho period until the start of the Showa period. Located in Kainan City, Wakayama Prefecture, it is the largest personal garden in Japan. The water levels of the three ponds, which draw water from the sea, change according to the tides, a rare design. There are pine trees and garden stones, and the beautiful layout is dotted with a teahouse with a thatched roof, a tatami room, and more. It has even been designated a “place of scenic beauty,” and the buildings are Important Cultural Properties.

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.
