  • It is preserved city indeed, old fashioned and honestly, feel, and taste. There isn't more guidebooks in fairly calm and glamorous shops, but sticking to small food shops, chic, more students can be recommended for adults who.

  • I went on a day trip from Hyogo. From Fukuyama station by bus takes about 30 minutes, fee 500 yen is kinda. Enjoy and old-fashioned Japan houses everywhere in the small town, walk 10 minutes. I felt compared to tsumago-Juku in Nagano sightseeing infrastructure and Shirakawa-go or a decayed House, have a challenge to maintain. On a calm sea of Seto Inland Sea unique assortment of Japan House good taste has been controversial. It is recommended because it is a Fu Temple: 200 yen for adults, but the view from here is pretty good. And the town of tomonoura, meal times, from 2 hours 3 hours make sure you would. Around the town are equipped with public toilets.
