  • It's a 30-minute bus from Fukuyama station. Overlooking the old port, the alley has a quaint. It is indescribable feeling left out of the Seto Inland Sea from the atmosphere. Yomeishu that keep life drinking sake is famous. Wave was calm, said the port of Toba Hotel International.

  • By car from Fukuyama port city in a strange city, 25 minutes by tomotetsu bus within 30 minutes. Some are nostalgic. Restaurants were stayed by Hayao Miyazaki, Ponyo on the cliff by the stage. It's OK if you walk cobble-stoned Street in a small town is town during the Edo period and before World War II, lost. Small but gangi is port history I think, you can learn more in a Museum built on the ruins of Tomo. Scenic wrote from the God effort Empress of the Kojiki and Manyoshu, tabito kubizuka Shogun of the Muromachi shogunate last Yoshiaki Tomo shogunate, Yamanaka shikanosuke, Joseon tongsinsa in Jima, Japanese Samurai 7 Sir falling ruins, Sakamoto ryoma IRO has Kuramoto of Koto Maru sinking negotiation, Miyagi sound, the sea of spring, keeping life and forest under jintan founder birthplace, we packed remains of the highlights. It was suitable for a slow walk through the town.

  • From JR Fukuyama station accessible by bus for about 30 minutes. Old buildings and narrow streets to defend well. Strong historical atmosphere rises. But it came at the end of the near History Museum were closed.
