      Agriculture is a thriving, and tangerine, plum, Hassaku, Jabara (Citrus Jabara), persimmon and pepper are first or second position of the value of shipments in the nation.

      “Jabara (Citrus Jabara)” is the fruit of citrus that is the same of Yuzu (citron) and Cabos (Citrus sphaerocarpa), and Kitayama is famous locality. It is said that it was named “Jabara” from the meaning of “drive away evil spirits (“Jaki” means evil spirits and “bara” means drive away in Japanese)”.

      There are local cuisines such as Mehari-zushi (Mehari Sushi), rice balls wrapped in salted leaves of mustard, Kujira no Tatsutaage (fried whale), fried whale fillets that were immersed in such soy sauce and ginger oil and coated with potato starch.

      There are Wakayama Castle, Wakaura, Koyasan and Kumano three mountains as tourism resources in the prefecture. Wakayama Castle is the castle Toyotomi Hideyoshi gave in 1585 to his younger brother Toyotomi Hidenaga at the time of Kishu conquest, and after the Battle of Sekigahara it had been ruled by Asano Yoshinaga, but the tenth child of Tokugawa Ieyasu, Tokugawa Yorinobu, entered the castle in 1619, and it became Tokugawa Gosanke (the three branch families of the Tokugawa house) and the birth of the Kishu Tokugawa clan. The Tokugawa Shogunate Eighth Shogun as famous ruler of virtue, Tokugawa Yoshimune, was the original fifth feudal lord of Kishu Tokugawa clan, and became the Shogun after he was adopted and became one of the Edo Tokugawa house.

      Koyasan of Koya-cho in Ito-gun is the sacred place of training that Kukai opened in 819 AD. It is the major religious temple city in which, including the Kongōbu-ji temple, there are more than 100 temples and altitude 1000m class mountains, and it is the Holy Land of Japanese Buddhism, along with Hieizan (Mount Hiei). In 2004, Pilgrimage Routes of Koyasan were added to our catalog on UNESCO world cultural heritage as Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range.

Kumano developed as a sacred place of faith, but it went to decline gradually under the influence of religion policy in the Edo era and the Meiji era and of Shinto and Buddhism isolation measures.

      There are rich tourism resources along the coast such as Shionomisaki, which was chosen to one of the hundred election of Japan sunsets, a national natural monument Hashigui-iwa (Hashigui Rock), Kushimoto Marine Park, which was registered in the Ramsar Convention, in the southernmost Honshu town, Kushimoto-cho.

Superb view from the observatory of Sandanheki is the best, but it is possible to go by elevator to Sandanheki-Dokutsu Cave in the basement 36m, and you can see up close the waves surging into the cave.
