👍👍 Amazing hostel right in the centre of Wakayama. We stayed here for a few nights and loved every minute of it. The owners of the hostel are fantastic and so friendly! We felt right at home. The beds were super comfy and it was a stones throw from Wakayama Castle and Gardens.

😐 Perhaps it's the hobby of the owner who likes railways, the inside of the store was so cute that he came to the world of toys, and he was full of fun.
