A port city next to the inland sea, Onomichi maintains a small-town feel and a domestic reputation for well-preserved landmarks, quiet streets, and traditions.
Visiting Sensui Island and Okunoshima Island will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Saikokuji Temple and Ishitsuchiyamakusari Shugyo. Change things up with these side-trips from Onomichi: Fukuyama (Fukuyama Castle & Tomo no Ura) and Takehara Townscape Preservation Area (in Takehara). The adventure continues: make a trip to Tenneiji Temple and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Senkoji & Senkoji Park.
