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 Takehara Townscape Preservation Area. Change things up with these side-trips from Onomichi: Fukuyama (Fukuyama Castle & Tomo no Ura). Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Tenneiji Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ishitsuchiyamakusari Shugyo, and stroll through Senkoji & Senkoji Park.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Onomichi route planner.
