Wakayama is the capital of Kii Province, and, until recently, the seat of the Umawaru Clan. It is a modestly sized city that sprawls out into the countryside beyond and generates most of its livelihood from the farmers and peasants who work the lands around the city. Wakayama has only a small wall separating the city proper from these rolling pastures, and boasts wide roads and an open aesthetic to better accommodate the movement of goods.
Nestled as it is on the edge of the province, the Western border of Wakayama is demarked by Osaka Bay, with a small port built in these waters. The city does not deal much in overseas trade or fishing, however, so the docks have only the minimum required to moor ships, and is unable to sustain a military fleet.
Wakayama was once known as a hub of artistic and aesthetic pursuits in Southern Japan, with the Daimyo himself amassing quite a collection of unique pieces. It is said that some of the more rare works in his possession even possessed magical powers, but they are all believed lost in the Chosokabe’s destructive invasion of the city.
