Porto Europe, Wakayama

2.6
#7 of 123 in Things to do in Wakayama
Built in the style of various medieval European townships, Porto Europe represents a full-scale reimagining of an Italian fishing village, a French town, and a historic Spanish castle. Along with amusements and rides, the park also boasts accomodations and restraunts. Fresh seafood is top of the menu here, thanks to the rich bounty brought in by the world's strongest ocean current, which flows by the tip of the region. The onsite fish market stocks a huge variety of seafood, with live shows of tuna preparation to observe, and barbeque dishes to sample.

    We visited on a weekday of the week. On a weekday and was free in the considerable heat. Sanrio's vacant & cool children (4-year-old girl), was pleased. A just admission 600 yen, so wanted to exempt from attending adult-. And Kuroshio market in food, decent price. Sushi, BBQ too high ~! Is fruit and in the adjacent building, Arakawa peach could buy quite cheap. This was good! Peach is better right away and take the little pain was an oversized one 100 yen! It won't last, of course, in the course of the day you gave me! Without expecting too much, in the children's eyes slowly! Of going going going by.

    Admission is free, the period of play in an amusement park, the children's favorite Sanrio limited booth the went. Is entered in the standard path in a family of four, but the attraction would also made with old and various meanings tension gate fell. Purchased a path to great regret. Not it's original. I knew we went on Saturday, but car parking is not only counted from opening until closing, what attractions are also nice, but the customer is not so. You'll attract very few. I could completely enjoy my elementary grade students, so small children kindergarten out of good-and I think I'm just getting into the kindergarten's attractions, so it is unreasonable. Exciting amusement at couldn't totally taste, was reminiscent of the Porto European fun glitter elementary school 20 years ago, I was not.

    Very nice place - it is like piece of Europe in Japan. You can do some shopping, touch dolphin as well as see Tuna filleting show (around three times a day). It is surrounded by white sand beaches, also there is a scene with live music played often..

    Admission is free and more accessible. Would be a fun place for elementary school children. Buy a pass like will take the defeat and immediately get original. And next to the market, bought souvenirs, such as seafood, plum or citrus fruit on the way back home!

    It is nice since the parking lot is large. I'd bought a pass so high a set price for each vehicle is free of charge and rides nice. Say, eat, and Kuroshio market right next to and in the play one day and blew it.
