Located in the southern part of the city in an artificial island, Wakayama’s Marina City is a playground for kids and adults alike. I was greeted with condominiums and plenty of yachts by the harbor as my taxi made the dramatic entrance to the island. Here, you’ll find Porto Europa, a theme park made to look like a Mediterranean coastal town. Entrance to the theme park is free but you need to pay for rides. There’s also a helpful English-speaking receptionist by the entrance who assisted me with bus schedules back to the city.

C’est une partie de la ville artificielle en bord de mer. Vous pourrez aller à la plage, faire du kitesurf, aller dans un parc d’attractions ultra-kitsh décoré comme si on était en Europe (Porto Europa, que vous pouvez visiter gratuitement, mais il faut bien évidemment payer pour les attractions)

In the southernmost part of Wakayama City lies the artificial island of Marina City. This is a real tourist hotspot, home to the yacht harbour and a huge resort hotel. I got a real kick out of the small theme park Porto Europa, which has been designed to look like the streets of port towns in Mediterranean Europe.
