  • Stayed here for 2 days of serenity. A lot of temples and ballads to bike in the village and discoveries around the port.

  • It is a nice town. Ohta House opens at 10 am, grandmother's store was opened 10 minutes ago. This is a great collection. April could have dolls adorned, was very nice. Recalling the past glory

  •  Visit tomonoura from Fukuyama city, but it is another world. Extends the quaint historic towns like time stood still.  It is perfect to enjoy the scenery of Seto and ferry crossing to the island on the other side of Pier from the Edo period changed little from. Stroll through the narrow streets, the busyness of everyday life, and can be refreshed. But few souvenir stores, specialty liqueurs kept life are also sold in small bottles, so is perfect for distribute souvenirs to take home.

  • The kids always have fun hunting for things in the beach over on Sensuijima.
  • Beautiful little town with lots of quirky locals.
  • Filming location for the Meteor wagon did not go up. Had a description that was shipping points without location or relationship, but gradually decline and where time has stopped that meet unique atmosphere with streets. Staff is used in drama. Of course I don't go was if possible but you know us ahead of new buildings from now on wants remain still. We cannot go over to jima didn't like revenge one day.

  • It is advisable to stroll leisurely while taking a sea breeze on the bike. Shooting of many films and stage not only remembered the splendor and excitement, and to actually see. Seems to survive many nostalgic atmosphere somewhere, just slipped it. It is without spot mistakes to be healed.

  • Remain vestiges as a cornerstone of international trade flourished during the Edo period, a nostalgic port. This! "Just watching the scenery of the town though, there's not a feeling calm can be found in the Seto Inland Sea. Leave the appearance of Edo people go overboard and flowing, city streets, very peaceful location.
