Wakayama Castle town has preserved several places associated with the people’s life under the rule of the Kishu Tokugawa Family during the Edo period (1603-1867) when the area prospered around the castle. Between the inner and outer moats samurai warriors resided, and beyond the outer moat commercial towns were stretched. By strolling through the present castle town, you still can feel the life of the people in those days.
