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.

  • Seems like the whole city is cultural. But unfortunately many pedestrians, cars and big bikes is the number that is. Enjoy the stroll.

  • 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.
  • 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.
