Porto Europe (Porto Europa)2.5
A Mediterranean themed leisure park located in the Wakayama Marina City, an artificial island on Wakaura Bay. The park is divided into two zones: the Porto Europa Zone with a full-scale reproduction of streets in an Italian seaside town, an old castle in Spain and traditional French town and the Amusement Park Zone with roller coasters and Ferris wheels. Even if you are from European countries and not enthusiastic about the Western things, the nearby Kuroshio Ichiba (Kuroshio Market), where you can taste Sushi and other Japanese cuisine with fresh sea foods, might be appealing.

My husband took me here for my birthday and we loved it. It's very picturesque and made us feel that we really were in Europe. Bring your camera because there will be lots of beautiful photo spots. The place isn't that big so you can pretty much see everything in about an hour or two (if you take lots of photos).
Parking is about 1000 yen but entrance to the park is free.

entry into porto europe is free, a fee is only charged if you want to ride the rides inside the amusement park. many photos of interesting spots, the atmosphere is comfortable, even the music that sounds European is nuanced. it's just that the toilet facilities are a little dirty.

You'll feel like you are not in Japan for a moment. A very nice place for photoshoots. Entrance is FREE by the way. You will only have to pay for the rides.

A small theme park with western style buildings and some amusement facilities.
The Kuroshio fish market is right beside the park. The food in the fish market are more pricy than those in normal restaurants in Wakayama city.
