An artificial island, a multi amusement facility

An artificial island sits in Wakaura, a scenic area southeast of Wakayama City. It offers a variety of amusement. A theme park, Porto Europe, with a fancy European townscape and other features will let you have fun all day.

Everyday, there is a tuna-cutting demonstration at Kuroshio Market, where fresh local fish and seafood from the nearby ocean are available. Besides sashimi, sushi and seafood rice bowl, BBQ sets are sold which you can purchase and taste at the outdoor terrace tables with grills. Upstairs hosts a buffet restaurant serving tuna freshly cut up.

Many repeaters visit Umizuri Koen (Ocean Fishing Park), where even beginners get big ones like red bream and yellowtail from the fishing hole set up. The footing is not made of rafts, but with concrete, safe for families with small children.

After lots of fun and good food, enjoy a healing time at a bathing facility, Kishu-Kuroshio Onsen. The chloride spring from 1,500m-deep Cretaceous layer in the ocean is called the heat water that helps you keep warm. Relax in the hot spring and watch the yacht harbor and ocean scenery.
