Shōchan and I had an adventure day this week on our day off in Wakayama City. It was a lot of fun! We visited Wakayama Castle, a picturesque old castle that sits upon a hill looking over the city. It was beautiful and rich with history. We also went to a place by the sea called Marina City where we had super fresh sashimi sushi and walked along the ocean boardwalk. Of course, we also made time for a spot of shopping while we were there (I just can`t go by a 100 yen shop without a little look around). All in all, it was a great day and really nice to get out and about and explore more of beautiful Wakayama.
