07.51 Arrived at Wakayama station, and we switched line to Kisei Line and going to Wakayamashi Station.
We arrived at Wakayamashi Station, and continue our journey to Wakayama Castle by walking. We use maps application to show us the way. During our walk we found some cool places, so we took a picture there.

If you want to go inside the castle you have to pay 410 JPY for adults (as for children usually it’ll charged half price from adult price, but I forgot the exact price).

Inside of the castle they have an exhibition and explaination about the castle’s history, etc. For information, this castle doesn’t provide you an English explanation. So, everything is written in Japanese only.

As for me, because I’ve never been going to the inside of the castle, I paid 410 JPY and going inside.
As far as I could remember you can’t take a picture inside of the castle (exhibition area). They only let you to take a picture when you’re in the castle’s rooftop. Here’s some photos that I took from the rooftop.
