Wakayama Prefecture is a prefecture of Japan located on the Kii Peninsula in the Kansai region on Honsh island. The capital is the city of Wakayama.

Mount Kya in the Ito District is the headquarters of the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism. It is home to one of the first Japanese style buddhist temples in Japan and remains a site of pilgrimage and an increasingly popular tourist destination as people flock to see its ancient temples set amidst the towering cedar trees at the top of the mountain.
