A refined garden in the grounds of Wakayama Castle. Walk briskly down the hill behind the tower to the north and along the lane enclosed by a white earth wall and a bluestone (chlorite schiste) wall and the rustic thatched gate will come into view. When you pass through this gate, a calm space opens up before you and you almost forget that you are in the city.

Located also within the castle grounds is the Momijidani Gardens. With part of the castle moats as its center, the gardens are a beautiful sight even under the punishing heat of summer. Make sure to catch the view from opposite the gardens near the Ohashirouka Bridge to see the main pavilion against the stunning foliage. It is said to look its best during autumn with reds and yellows contrasting against the pavilion’s wooden construct.

The castle itself is a museum filled with old Japanese warrior costumes, letters and swords, and my favourite item, a huge chest, that I could easily fit in, that was used to store tea. That’s my kind of tea chest!

It costs about 400 yen to go inside the castle, though you can visit the Japanese Garden and walk around the walls for free. It’s worth going in to walk to the top and see the views across the city though.

If you’re going to see the Wakayama Castle, chances are your going to walk through the massive park that surrounds it, so you might as well stop at the cute Momijidani Gardens as well. There’s a cute pond, with an even cuter little tea house looking thing that sits atop of it, and the historic Ohashi Roka bridge over it.
