Wakayama is located only about 30km (or 18 miles) south of Osaka Kansai International Airport and has its own distinctive charm. The world famous Wakayama Castle in the center, the city offers a wide variety of attractions. We will stroll through Wakayama Castle and its castle town, and show you what Wakayama has to offer.  This will be the best introductory tour for you to familiarize yourself to Wakayama, or even Japan in general.
What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: WAK Guide, 4 Ichibancho, Wakayama 640-8799 Wakayama Prefecture

After meeting near historic Wakayama Castle Park, we will walk up right by the majestic Wakayama Castle and enjoy the nice view of the castle.  We will talk about the history of the city and castle along the way.  After visiting the castle, we will stroll through Downtown Wakayama and show you the local people's life, tradition, culture, foods and so on. If you ever feel tired of walking during our tour, we can always take a break anywhere on our way.  We know the best Japanese traditional sweets shop in town for that.  You may try on an ancient samurai warrior's armor costume at the castle if it interests you (free).  Make sure to ask many questions to your tour guide, since we are all professional licensed guides, and most importantly we are the Wakayama locals !! We will be walking about 3km (or 2 miles), some uphills to the castle tower.
