Wakayama

Getting there & away

Wakayama is serviced by JR tokkyū trains from Shin-Osaka and Kyoto, but unless you’ve got a Japan Rail Pass it’s cheaper to take a local train on the JR Hanwa line from Osaka’s Tennō-ji station (kaisoku, ¥830, 58 minutes). From Osaka’s Namba station you can also take the private Nankai line to Wakayama-shi station (kyūkō, ¥890, 63 minutes), which is linked to JR Wakayama station by the JR Kisei main line (futsū, ¥180, six minutes).
