Obara Cave Dinosaur Land & Gokuraku Cavern (小原洞窟恐竜ランド&極楽洞)
"This is a cavern where one can encounter a dinosaur experience just 20 minutes by car from the Hanazono branch of Katsuragi-cho town office. Two dinosaurs greet you at the gate of the cavern labyrinth. Once inside, the diorama corner displays dioramas of Triceratops and Pteranodons, and one can pass on through the cool maze of fluorescent minerals through the ‘glowing tunnel’ while enjoying the various Jurassic displays. In the Gokuraku-do (paradise cave), visitors can experience the world after death in Buddhism by walking along the passages leading either to ""paradise"" or ""hell"" themed areas. Besides, 200,000 kerria bushes which reach their peak bloom around the long holiday in May."

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.
