The white-as-chalk castle tower rises above Mt. Torafusu which is thick with greenery and has a stateliness worthy of the dignity of the three houses of the Tokugawa clan. Construction began on Wakayama Castle in the 13th year of the Tensho Period (1585) under the supervision of Hidenaga, the younger brother of Hideyoshi Toyotomi who subjugated Kishu.

Lattraction la plus populaire à visiter à Wakayama cest son château. Situé sur une colline en plein milieu de la ville, il a été, comme la plupart des châteaux japonais, plusieurs fois détruit et reconstruit. Lédifice actuel date de 1958. Lintérieur est transformé en musée avec des objets dépoque et des armures de samouraï. Il faut monter tout en haut pour profiter dune vue magnifique sur Wakayama.

The gleaming white Wakayama Castle has sat proudly in the centre of downtown Wakayama since the 1500s. Peaceful gardens and regal gates, which contrast starkly with the present day buildings, surround the three-tiered castle tower.

En voyage, et plus particulièrement au Japon, j’adore me promener au hasard des rues d’une ville, laissant la ville me surprendre et mes pas me guider vers de nouvelles découvertes. C’est un excellent moyen d’apprendre à connaître une ville, de la ressentir et de la vivre. Les rues de Wakayama sont très calmes tout au long de la journée et il est certain que j’étais la seule touriste occidentale à se balader sous le ciel gris du mois de décembre.

Inside the castle is an interesting museum, and some amazing views of the city – but the real highlights for me were the castle grounds, which are stunning, and the architecture of the castle itself. One of the prettiest sites in Wakayama!

The Wakayama Castle. It’s the staple icon of the entire area. You really can’t miss it once you get there, and it may be hard not to stare at it for a while.
