Wakayama Castle, Wakayama
Categories: Castles, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Marvel at the varied and interesting history of Wakayama Castle, a landmark central to the town's cultural lineage. Built in 1586 as the castle of a feudal lord, the building was heavily contested during the reconstruction of Japan, changing hands and uses regularly. The castle's current appearance--a chalky white exterior with three stories towering above the center of the city--owes much to renovations during the 17th century. Observe the cityscape below from this mountaintop seat of history and power, admiring the top-down view that so many rulers have cherished throughout the castle's complicated history. With our international travel planner, Wakayama attractions like Wakayama Castle can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

お城はどこも同じですが、比較的高いところから見下ろせるようになっています。お天気のよいときに、殿様気分でのんびりと歴史に思いを馳せながら昔の品々をゆっくり眺めていると、うっかり時間を忘れてしまいます。時間にゆとりをもって観光しましょう。Castle is everywhere the same, but from relatively high overlooking the as it is. When the weather is good, slowly looking at pieces of the old homestead and historical prominence and accidentally forget time. Time to make tourism composure.show original

和歌山市の中心部にある和歌山城。 駐車場は周りに沢山あるので安心。 石畳の道がなんとも言えない雰囲気を醸し出していました。 お城はとても風格があり、小さいながらも趣きがあります。 17時半で天守閣に入れなくなるので要注意です。 桜の木がお城の周りにあり、桜の季節に訪れたくなりました。Wakayama Castle, Wakayama city, centrally located.

Cherry Blossom trees around the Castle and now want to visit the cherry blossom season.show original
Great view of the city from the top of the castle, along with relics inside for viewing (descriptions in Japanese only). There is a mild incline walk to get to the entrance of the castle but is well worth the visit. Entrance ticket also includes a voucher to the relatively new Wakayama history museum nearby, which is worth a visit as well (English descriptions available there).
Beautiful with sakura
Nobu WatOf the big three, one of Kishu Tokugawa family residence is as you know. A little walk to reach the Castle. Next to the small zoo or a castle. Small as a castle zone? I think space is becoming below 1/4 of the time. I'm sorry-has become a Museum in the Castle. No glitz like Owari branch of Nagoya Castle, but it is recommended.show original
