Tomo no Ura, Fukuyama
(4.1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)

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.

  • You can walk. There are lot of temples, quaint. It is, however, a narrow street to traffic, cars often pass by, so a little bit dangerous. While in the car, take a walk. Well in a sunny day, excellent time.

  • This was the second visit that also staff in a different perspective. Went to the sensuijima, not just feel good to poke a few hours deep history is very helpful.

  • Just spent a while recalling the story of the Murakami Suigun sea views. Island floating on the calm water and ship only, soothing views.
