This is the seal of the “Tourist Pavilion” which was established in Edo by Kishu Domain. It was established by a domain lord who had heard how Chinese rulers had benefited from the practice of showing visitors the splendor of their country. I am delighted to be part of a modern effort with the same intent and sentiment. I am delighted to be helping reveal the abundant spiritual splendor of Wakayama.
