This is one of the best 100 castles in Japan. Cherry blossoms and the views from Tenshukaku, castle tower, are extraordinarily beautiful.

Wakayama Castle, the symbol of Wakayama city, was built in 1585 and was the residence of the lord of the Kishu in Edo Period. The castle burnt down once, and was reconstructed in 1958. Numerous samurai armors are displayed in Tenshukaku, or castle tower. The top of the Tenshukaku is the best place to enjoy the view of Wakayama city. There is a tearoom to experience the traditional tea ceremony.
