Explore a Japanese castle and learn about its historical and strategic importance on the Kii Peninsula.

Experience what it might have felt like to be a feudal lord as your guide navigates through the halls, nooks, corners and gardens of the castle estate including the tower, a Japanese National Treasure. Hear about the castle's architecture, position and dominance for descendants of the ruling Shogun of Japan, and about life living on its grounds.

And don't forget to take in the panoramic view of Wakayama City from the top floor.
The guide will meet guests at the JR Kii-Tanabe Station and ride with them to Wakayama Station. From there, the guide will help secure luggage if need be and then ride with guests by public bus to Wakayama Castle for the tour.
The guide can make recommendations for lunch.
At the end of the tour, guests will ride the public bus back to Wakayama Station with the guide then take the train to Kansai International Airport Station where the guided tour concludes.
