Underwater Post Box (海中ポスト)

Other Sightseeing Spot

The Underwater Post Box is about a 19-minute walk from Susami Station on the JR Kisei Line, in water about 10 meters deep 100 meters off the Karekinada Coast in the town of Susami. It was set up in 1999 on the occasion of the Nanki Kumano Taikenhaku, an outdoor exhibition, and it has been listed in The Guinness Book of World Records as the world's deepest underwater post box. Visitors can buy special waterproof artificial paper for use in the underwater post box at Club Noah Susami. They do not even have to dive down to the bottom of the sea to mail their postcards; staff members will do it for them.

          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.
