Hidaka Port(area:KINKI/WAKAYAMA)

World Heritage Spring Summer Autumn Winter

The Hidaka Port, with its location on the main shipping lanes of the Pacific Ocean, is also ideally placed to act as a gateway port to Osaka Bay, where these shipping lanes converge. Moreover, the port is connected to the main transportation networks and is 10 minutes from a highway interchange. In this way, the Hidaka Port serves as a link between sea and land, with excellent potential as a logistics hub.
There are great hopes for the activities surrounding the Hidaka Port, which can revitalize the local industry, create new industries, increase employment opportunities, and promote tourism in the area.
Nearby are a number of locations of interest to visitors, such as the Yuasa Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings, Dojoji Temple and the scenic sites of Shirahama, to name but a few.
