The verification card from the WBS radio (Wakayama, Japan)

Wakayama Prefecture is on the Kii Peninsula in the Kansai region, the capital is Wakayama City.

(Wakayama prefecture)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wakayama_Prefecture

(The official Wakayama travel guide in English)

https://en.visitwakayama.jp/

  

In my opinion, this prefecture is famous for its high production of mikans (Mandarin Oranges) and two world-famous historical places, the Koya-san and the Kumano-kodo.

 

Waka_01

 

mikans Citrus ‘unshiu’

A number of citrus fruits are grown in or strongly associated with Japan.

Many of these fruits are of Chinese origin, but have been modified or specially bred for cultivation in Japan.

Since feudal times, local farms in Wakayama have cultivated premium fruit.

 

During the Edo Period (1603 - 1868) the tenth Lord of Kishu, Harutomi Tokugawa, would have prized Sanbokan Mikan tangerines delivered to Wakayama Castle.

This prefecture is still the nation's top producer of premium fruit; so much so that it is often called ‘The Fruit Kingdom’. (Kajuokoku Wakayama).

The tastiest of the region's fruit remains in Wakayama, which makes a visit to Wakayama a must for the fruit connoisseur.

(Japanese citrus)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_citrus

 

Koya-san (Mount Koya)

Koya-san is a modifying word for Kongobu-ji.

In 2004, UNESCO designated Mt. Koya, along with two other locations on the Kii Peninsula, Yoshino and Omine; and Kumano Sanzan, as World Heritage Sites ‘Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Rang’.

First settled in 819 by the monk Kukai, Mt. Kōya is primarily known as the world headquarters of the ‘Koyasan Shingon’ sect of Japanese Buddhism.

 

Located in an 800 meters high valley amid the eight peaks of the mountain (which was the reason this location was selected, in that the terrain is supposed to resemble a lotus plant), the original monastery has grown into the town of Koya, featuring a university dedicated to religious studies and 120 temples, many of which offer lodging to pilgrims.

Waka_02

 

The Kumano Kodo

The ‘Kumano Kodo’ is a series of ancient pilgrimage routes that crisscross the Kii Hanto, the largest Peninsula of Japan.

These sacred trails were and are used for the pilgrimage to the sacred site ‘Kumano Sanzan’ or the Three Grand Shrines of Kumano: Kumano Hongū Taisha, Kumano Nachi Taisha and Kumano Hayatama Taisha.

The Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes that lead to Kumano can be categorized into three sub-routes: Kiji, Kohechi and Iseji.

The Kumano Kodo and Kumano Sanzan, along with Koyasan and Yoshino and Omine, were registered as UNESCO World Heritage sites.

WBS, Wakayama Broadcasting System’s radio (JOVF) is a broadcaster which serves the whole part of this prefecture, the only commercial (private) MW broadcaster in Wakayama pref.

Their primary MW transmitter is in Wakayama City (1431kHz / 5kW) and main complementary (supplementary) FM transmitter is on 94.2MHz (500W).

They have many repeaters (relays); in Hashimoto City including Koya-san area (1485kHz / 91.6MHz), in Gobo City (1557kHz / 92.4MHz), in Tanabe City (1233kHz / 91.6MHz), in Kushimoto (1431kHz / 92.4MHz), in Shingu City (1557kHz / 94.2MHz).

The remarkable multilingual FM station in Osaka, ‘FM Cocolo’

The ‘FM Cocolo’ is a multilingual FM radio station in Japan, owned and operated by FM 802 Co., Ltd.

The word‘Cocolo’ means ‘heart’ in Japanese.

 

They broadcast on 76.5 MHz (10kW) to the ‘Kansai’ (near Osaka) area, which includes Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo, Nara, Shiga, and Wakayama prefectures.

Right now, no repeater or relay is available.

This station is part of the Megalopolis Radio Network (MegaNet), linking Japan's international FM radio stations.

They’re the InterFM897 (in Tokyo), the Radio Neo (in Nagoya, Aichi) , the LoveFM (in Fukuoka) and them, covering more than 65% of Japan's population.

Osaka and Kyoto are popular destinations for foreign tourists.

If Tokyo is Japan's capital, one might call Osaka its anti-capital.

Whatever you call it, though, there are many opportunities for you to discover its true character.

Veiled much with a commercial-centric city touch, you may as well start from picking up the lively intonation of Osaka dialect, heard from the people as you ride on the escalators standing on the right, instead of the left in Tokyo (It’s amazing!); then discovering the contrast of popular food to eastern Japan, as you look for places to lunch.

Kyoto was the capital of Japan for over a millennium, and carries a reputation as its most beautiful city.

However, visitors may be surprised by how much work they will have to do to see Kyoto's beautiful side.

Most first impressions of the city will be of the urban sprawl of central Kyoto, around the ultra-modern glass-and-steel train station, which is itself an example of a city steeped in tradition colliding with the modern world.

Nonetheless, the persistent visitor will soon discover Kyoto's hidden beauty in the temples and parks which ring the city center, and find that the city has much more to offer than immediately meets the eye.

 

A staff of FM Cocolo gently permitted me to introduce their Web site precisely.

So I'd like to describe the links of their foreign services by podcast.

I'm still really impressed in Nagasaki, because one of the unique places in Japan.

Why? It was the one of few places to open to foreign trading, during Edo era.

The policy stated that the only European influence permitted was the Dutch factory at ‘De-jima’ island in Nagasaki City, trading with China was also handled at there, also trading with Korea was limited to the Tsushima Domain.

Because of such a background, Nagasaki has prominent Catholic churches and Christian Sites.

 

Go without saying, the American atomic bomb made Nagasaki the second (after Hiroshima) and last city in the world to experience a nuclear attack.

Sasebo, the second largest city in the pref., is widely known for the U.S. Navy base. (U.S. Fleet Activities Sasebo)

Kumamoto prefecture located on the central part of Kyushu, famous for Mt. Aso, Kumamoto Castle, Kuma-mon, etc.

I’ve been to many times, because there’re a lot of scenic and comfortable places and close to Fukuoka.

Mt. Aso

We usually call this prefecture as ‘the land of fire’, means the volcano (Mt.Aso) is the prime symbol of Kumamoto.

It’s the largest active volcano in Japan, and is among the largest in the world.

In these days, the number of tourists visiting the area from Asian countries has been increasing.

Previously, visitors could not drive their own vehicles up to the crater, but a car park was built a minute's walk away.

At the foot of the mountain there are also various campsites, and horse riding at Kusa-senriga-hama.

Modern poetry has been written about the beautiful scenery at Kusa-senriga-hama, which has been designated a place of scenic beauty, or natural monument.

The Kumamoto castle

It’s a hilltop castle located in Chuo-ku, Kumamoto City, was a large and well fortified.

The castle keep is a concrete reconstruction built in 1960, but several ancillary wooden buildings remain of the original castle.

This castle is considered one of the three premier castles in Japan, along with Himeji Castle (in Hyogo pref.) and Matsumoto Castle (in Nagano pref.).

Thirteen structures in the castle complex are designated Important Cultural Property.

Sadly, it sustained damage in a magnitude 6.2 earthquake that struck on April 2016.

As of June 2016, the efforts to repair the castle have begun.

The completion date of full repair and restoration of the entire castle is scheduled to set in the year 2036.

Hiro_06

 

I’ve been to Hiroshima City approx. five times, the last travel was in 2015, on private, with my wife and son.

Needless to say, this city is famous for the attack by an atomic bomb, however there're three specialities in this city, except Hiroshima Peace Memorial museum.

 

Hiroshima style ‘Oko-no-mi-yaki’

'Okonomiyaki' is thin and flat pancake cooked on a hot plate with bits of meat, seafood and chopped cabbages.

In genrral, easily available in west part of Japan.

It's cooked with various ingredients, which are layered rather than mixed together

as done with the Osaka style of Okonomiyaki.

The layers are typically egg, cabbage, bean sprouts, sliced pork/bacon with optional

items (mayonnaise, fried squid, octopus, cheese  etc.), and noodles (In Japanese, 'Soba', 'Udon') topped with another layer of egg and a generous dollop of Okonomiyaki sauce.

The amount of cabbage used is usually 3 to 4 times the amount used in Osaka style,

therefore arguably a healthier version.

It starts out piled very high and is generally pushed down as the cabbage cooks.

The order of the layers may vary slightly depending on the chef's style and preference and ingredients will vary depending on the preference of customers.

【An oyster ('Kaki' in Japanese)

It's big and thick tasty, and this city is the number one of landing of oysters in our country.

Kaki-no-Dotenabe (Oyster in the pot which spread miso on its edge) is local dish.

I've heard Hiroshima residents often cook fried oysters and oysters on rice in winter.

Also, there are some oyster shops that serve grilled oysters and vinegared fresh oysters to visitors.

We enjoyed yummy Okonomiyakis with oyster at a restaurant in Miyajima island, famous for 'Itsuku-shima' shrine, located in Hiroshima bay area.

I’ve been to Saga several times, because I’d lived in Fukuoka City for one and a half years and almost all parts of Saga are close to Fukuoka.

In my opinion, Saga is known for the International Balloon Fiesta in these days.

It’s held at the beginning of November every year in this pref.

The fiesta is held just outside Saga City, along the Kase River.

It has grown from a gathering of 5 hot air balloons to a competition where over 3500 people volunteer, and has gained a reputation as one of the top ballooning competitions in the world.

It is also a popular time for tourists as the ‘Karatsu Kunchi’ Festival is held at the same time in Karatsu City.

Since 1980 the launch site has been visited by over 10 million spectators.

Shizuoka Prefecture is an elongated region following the coast of the Pacific Ocean at the Suruga Bay.

In the west, the prefecture extends deep into the Japan Alps. In the east, it becomes a narrower coast bounded in the north by Mount Fuji, until it comes to the Izu Peninsula, a popular resort area pointing south into the Pacific.

 

As of 2012, 11% of the total land area of the prefecture was designated as Natural Parks, namely the Fuji-Hakone-Izu and Minami Alps National Parks; Tenryū-Okumikawa Quasi-National Park; and four Prefectural Natural Parks.

Shizuoka is particularly advantaged among Japan's prefectures in many ways, ranging from location, natural beauty, and climate to its industrial production and tourism.

 

In fact, official statistics show it to be the leading prefecture in Japan in nearly 250 different categories, for example;

 

・Mount Fuji (The highest Mountain in Japan),

・Suruga Bay (The deepest Bay in Japan),

・Green Tea production volume,

・Green Melon production volume,

・Wasabi (Japanese horseradish) production volume,

 

I'd lived in this prefecture for several years, so am well-informed about there.
