Apr.

A 136 m high Mt. Takatsuko used to be a busy hub for sightseeing in Wakaura, with a ropeway connecting Shinwakaura Station and Takatsukoyama Station and a rotating observatory with sliders.
Shin Waka Amusement Park here was abolished in 1997 and completely removed, but the current observatory that was built by Nankai Electric Railway in 1999 still retains the shape of the remnants of the rotating observatory at that time. After the removal of the Shin Waka Amusement Park, this place looked quite empty, so later, many flowers were planted by the hands of citizen volunteers, and it became known as a cherry blossom viewing spot again.
Even now, you can see the magnificent view of Wakayama City as well as Wakanoura Bay from the observatory, and it has been selected as one of the 100 best Asahi Sunsets in Wakayama Prefecture.
There are some places to rest on the way to the observatory, so you can climb at your own pace.
