Towering at the center of Wakayama City, Wakayama Castle, the symbol of Wakayama City, was built in 1585 and was the residence of the lords of Kishu in the Edo period. The castle burnt down once, and was reconstructed in 1958. Much samurai armor is on display in the tenshukaku, or castle tower. The top of the tenshukaku offers the absolute best view of Wakayama City. There is also a tearoom where you can experience a traditional tea ceremony.
