Michi no Eki Road Station

This roadside station is located about ten minutes by car from the Keinawa Expressway Kinokawa-Higashi Interchange. Its Flower Hill Museum complex designed by Kisho Kurokawa has an exhibition room with items and documents belonging to Hanaoka Seishu, the surgeon responsible for the world's first successful surgical removal of breast cancer by general anesthesia. Shunrinken, the surgeon's residence and clinic, has been relocated here. There's a realistic replication of surgery during the period as well as experiments with the anesthetic Tsusensan using mannequins and sound. There's a restaurant on the premises too.

          Wakayama Areas


          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.
