The Nanki/Kishu area is a beautiful area, not too widely toured by foreign visitors. With the itinerary and the scenic drive, it is a combination that is quite unforgettable. The itinerary can be adjusted as necessary and stops requested along the way. Please feel free to request any changes at any time.

Like several other resort towns along the Wakayama coast, Katsuura is blessed with hot springs, many of which supply heated mineral water to private baths in hotels, like the famous Hotel Urashima. However, as we found in Shirahama, there are several public footbaths around Katsuura where a weary traveler can take a load off and relax for a few minutes. The best known of these is probably the small bath right outside the train station and adjacent to the bus center loading area. The nicest one, however, is in a new structure built at the edge of the wharf near the tuna market. You have a lovely view of the harbor while soaking your feet in the long trough footbaths. There is also an unusual two-level trough where you can comfortably soak your feet and hands simultaneously while watching activities in the harbor. I noticed that the old locals, though, prefer the older, original bath at this location, which is across the street and behind you when you are soaking. I think their preference is mainly that the water in the older bath is hotter.

It’s astounding how refreshing a warm foot bath can be to a tired and dusty tourist. 5 minutes’ walk down the main street from the train station, a shady public convenience, immaculate of course, with a lovely view of the scenic Katsuura harbour.

One of the unusual features of the fishing town/resort of Katsuura is that the town has tapped into the local warm, mildly sulphuric springs to provide free footbaths at several locations including near the train station and by the waterfront. Its a pleasant experience, especially since Katsuura is best visited on foot and 15 minutes soaking your feet with other visitors makes a pleasant break.
