Minakata Kumagusu Archives南方熊楠顕彰館
This facility houses books and other materials that belonged to Kumagusu Minakata, a modern scholar of natural history, theology, and folklore. It is next to the residence he inhabited in his later years in Nakayashiki Town, Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture. Inside, you’ll find exhibits that explain his accomplishments, life, the region, and so on. The second floor contains a study and an area where you can read reproduced materials. The copy of Kumagusu’s resume, written on a roll of 7.8 meter-long-paper in fine print, is a must-see. Entry is free, though entry to the adjoining residence requires a fee.

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.
