Tomo no Ura, Fukuyama

4.2
A picturesque port town at the southern end of Fukuyama city, Tomo no Ura offers scenic views and an insight into Japan’s age of sails. Traditional dark wooden facades, a lovely 11 m (33 ft) tall Edo-period stone lighthouse, cobblestone steps, and a historic pier and old docks all preserve the Edo atmosphere. Famous for the production of "homeishu," medical liquor said to induce longevity, the port has a museum dedicated to it. You can also visit four temples and a shrine, as well as museum of history and folklore. Tomo Port sits 30 minutes by bus from Fukuyama.

  • Stopped the car at the parking lot next to the ferry terminal is only about 30 minutes did not have time, and walked back to the lighthouse. In a 3-day weekend tourists well, enjoyed the atmosphere. Studying the history and properly guide can be like and want.

  • Historically famous but seems less like special tourist facilities. Would stay at an Inn, mood and walk walk to such place. Town seems interesting so far in history and atmosphere. It was hard to get through because the road is narrow with little parking. As previously talked of in the landscape issue was canceled like. I think bridge and 易kereba through personally also would come, but in the current situation revisited is not.

  • Quaint fishing town with a charming old downtown area. Best feature are the friendly and somewhat quirky local shop owners. Worth visiting for a day trip if you ever find yourself in the vicinity.
  • The kids always have fun hunting for things in the beach over on Sensuijima.
  • Beautiful little town with lots of quirky locals.
  • There are free on Wednesdays, so shop and as a filming location for TV dramas and movies, you-.-! There were lots of things! Worried so hard on the leash of the Kannon, Temple of prayer and what, immediately calls the good news! I was surprised at this temple. So too can enjoy

  • Including the tomonoura area in 1934, first designated as a national park area. Commemorative stamps are issued. Just seems this tomonoura port of port facility during the Edo period remain. Said Miyazaki movie one model of "Ponyo on the cliff" and, recently, also became a filming location for the TV series a Meteor wagon by the year 2015. It is a town have left a lot of smell of the Showa era.
