  • 1. Traffic: In front of Fushan 烏丸御池駅 south entrance of the 5 bus stop (鞆 subway バス), a ticket price of 550 yen, in addition to the cash, you can also use Icoca deduction, the car about 30 minutes, the car to the point of the right side of the light case, return time is in the light of the case of the car. 2. The historical meaning: the "いろは Maru of Osaka," the place where the victory, when the first talk about the location of the "いろは pill incident," there are reservations. 3. The drama fan faces the Holy Ground: It is a lot of film or the filming of the scene, you can find in this theater. 4. Ping Cheng いろは pill: In the city camp Ferry can take the road to the island of Sin 酔 traffic ship, the ship is only about 5 minutes, the 240 yen of the master, special is the ship's shape modeled after the end of the river いろは pill event sank the ship without 鞆, the black hull is very distinctive, is a special boat experience. 5. Small fishing Port: Whether it's a drama fan or a person who loves history, there are all kinds of fascinating factors. That being said, there's not much to pack, and I think it's a very hard place to go, and it's really a great way to get rid of the city's busy, fully relaxed fishing village.

  • What you should know before try to visit Tonamura: - It's a famous fishing village close to Fukuyama (about 30 mins). - ‎Ticket bus is 550¥ (one way). - ‎It's a quite place, and pleanty of sightspots to enjoyed a whole day as: Nunakuma temple, Old lighthouse or Louji temple. - ‎It's a little expensive, but it's possible find some places with good prices. Bring some snacks. - ‎There is a turist boat to give a look around the small islands beside the port. - ‎Even if you spend the entire day here, you will feel that you missing visit a lot of places. - ‎At 5pm close almost everything, and it becomes a ghost village. I highly recommend visit this place.
  • It is calm and we can understand Japanese historical port history. It is discribedby by many dramas, animes and movies. you can forget your daily life since you can feel cea and calm place.
  • Worth the half day trip. Good food. History. Even a vintage toy shop.
  • Worth a visit. Be prepared to walk a lot if visiting all the temples. Nice examples of old Japanese architecture.
  • I loved this place! I found many old and interesting buildings to take great pictures.
