Onomichi

3.6
Parks · Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites
A port city next to the inland sea, Onomichi maintains a small-town feel and a domestic reputation for well-preserved landmarks, quiet streets, and traditions. Two main walking routes reveal a number of attractions in Onomichi: heading up and down the many hills of the town center, you'll pass temples and monuments. Compared with many other historic towns across the country, Onomichi has retained much of its traditional charm, making it a particularly popular place with directors shooting period movies.

Where to stay in Onomichi

The historic center of Onomichi contains the majority of its accommodations, with a number of traditional-style ryokans located on the scenic streets, either in old buildings or purpose-built hotels with themed interiors. These guesthouses provide an atmospheric stay in the old town, close to the water and the main sights. However, many more visitors to Onomichi opt to see the place as part of a day trip from Hiroshima (30 minutes away to the west, by train) or Okayama (30 minutes to the east), both offering a much wider choice of lodgings.
