Wakayama’s Marina City is a seafood market a playground for kids and adults alike. Greeted with condominiums and plenty of yachts by the harbor.
You’ll find Porto Europa, a theme park made to look like a Mediterranean coastal town. Entrance to the theme park is free but you need to pay for rides. There’s also a helpful English-speaking receptionist by the entrance who assisted you with bus schedules back to the city.

We came here in spring when it was not so busy so it was great getting on some rides. Strange French Riviera feel. Good market to go for lunch, grab some food and cook it on the BBQ's. Sweet little area but not too much going on.
