Wakanoura is a famous place mentioned in many literary works. A ferry boat can be seen here. This was the mouth of Waka River into which Kino River used to flow in the ancient times. Kii Miidera Temple is visible on the hillside across the water. On the left is Mt. Imose with Kaizen-in built by Yorinobu, the first feudal lord of the Tokugawa Clan of Kishu. The building at the bottom of the hill is Kyo'odo at Kaizenji, and the roofs of Kankaikaku and Tahoto Pagoda are faintly visible in the trees.
