Kada station

 

Kada

①Medetai train

Kada is a port town in Wakayama city.

It seems to give Japanese people a nostalgic feeling.

You will have fun and interesting feeling by just walking around there.

And the train between Wakayama city and Kada sation is decorated with ornaments in the shape of sea creatures. It’s so cute!

Awashima shrine

 

②Awashima shrine

This old shrine is well-known for the “Hina Nagashi” ritual.

Many women visit this shrine to make prayers related to female matters such as childbirth and fertility.And also it’s famous for its dolls, which have been dedicated from all over the country and are lined up in the vermilion-lacquered front hall.

There are some restaurants where you can have fresh sea food.

(20 mins by ferry)

Tomogashima

 Tomogashima is a small group of islands off the coast.

You can hike, picnic and camp on Okinoshima, the main island.

The dilapidated red brick structures and overgrown vegetation give the island an uncanny resemblance to Laputa, the floating island in the Studio Ghibli movie Castle in the Sky.
