It is quite easy to get around in Wakayama-City. I chose to rent a bike from Comfort City Hotel on my second day there (you can rent bikes for free at this hotel) so I could freely explore the streets at my own pace.
You can also rent bikes from Wakayama City Tourist Information at Wakayama Castle for 500¥/day for a regular bike (tax included). Another option is to rent it from Wakayama Station, at Wakachika Hiroba (Tourist Exchange Center) in front of the train station. The fee is 500¥/day for the regular bike, 700¥ for the sports-type bike and 1.000¥ for the electric bike.
Even though I used a bike, I carefully took notes about other types of transport in the city so I can give you the right information for your trip.
