Yura Town is located between Wakayama City in the northern tip of Wakayama Prefecture and Shirahama, a famous tourist destination.

At the cape of the Shirasaki coast, there is "Shirasaki Ocean Park" where the entire park is a roadside station, where you can enjoy camping and diving, as well as a product sales shop and a facility where you can eat using local ingredients. Shirasaki Ocean Park is often featured in media such as TV commercials and magazines, and was also used as a filming location for the music video of HYDE of L'Arc-en-Ciel, an artist from Wakayama Prefecture.
