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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Takehara Townscape Preservation Area and Senkoji & Senkoji Park. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Hirayama Ikuo Museum of Art and Tenneiji Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Onomichi side-trips: Fukuyama (Fukuyama Castle, Tomo no Ura, &more) and Okunoshima Island (in Takehara). The adventure continues: make a trip to Kojoji Temple, snap pictures at Innoshima Bridge, and step off the mainland to explore Mukaishima.
