I went to Wakanoura for seeing autumnal leaves and eating seafood.

We went to Wakayama October 24, 25.
My wife planned this trip for her mother, but, as for me, a dinner and a hot spring were the biggest pleasure.

On the first day, we looked at Kimiidera(temple), Tamatsujima Shrine, Kishu-Toshogu( Shrine) and stayed at a hotel of Saikazaki.
On the next day, we went to Kuroe town of lacquerware, Kuroshio market of seafood, Yuasa town of soy sauce and mandarin orange
It was fine on the first day, but it was clouded from the evening, and it was rainy from the start of the next day.

This temple worships Kannon Bodhisattva.
We can look over Wakanoura bay from the precinct that we have climbed to on the stone stairway till the last.
The right hand of the central photo is Saikazaki cape that we have booked to stay overnight.
The autumnal leaves seem to have been overblown.

About this hotel
Good point of the hotel is that we can thoroughly enjoy a nice view of the setting sun and the fishing port from a room and a hot spring, the dining room.
Furthermore, the dinner and breakfast were splendid.
Our room was old and inconvenient, but we were satisfied with all the others.
This neighborhood is slightly desolate in an old hot-spring hotel street.
It is surprising that there was such a good place in Wakayama city.

The photo of the hot spring was borrowed from HP of the hotel.



Introduction of the dinner
The dinner was ingenious seasoning, good setout, and considerate service. 
We were able to enjoy the cooking deliciously.
