    Inside is Mandarin, making going back as far as future minds can find the Hill. Lift and rise above and there is another world. Weather was nice, blue sky and white building Japan's makes no such feelings. Who is inst very photogenic, so is recommended.

    Feels like a temple rather than a theme park in China. And if you want something unusual in May. However, "future mind Hill" is worth a look and... Though.

    The temple complex was very different from other Japanese shrines. We really enjoyed walking across different dieties, the cave with hundreds of sculptures and the marble hill of hope. The scenic view...  more »

    What it lacks in history (and perhaps authenticity, given that it's a businessman's pet project) it makes up for in its variety and aesthetic. Beautiful views, grand architecture (the underground "hells" especially) and modern detail make it well worth a visit. Especially recommended if you've been around Japan and feel like you never need to see another temple - this one is something a bit different.

    Beautiful and full of different things to see. The asking price is steep but well worth it!

    Kinda expensive to get in, but the old house to the left after you enter (and possibly up the first set of stairs) is worth the tour. The guides have an English version of facts and are very friendly. Also, be sure to go to the very, very top. You'll see an elevator somewhere. You can use the stairs or the lift. Follow the path to the top and there's a garden of marble and at the very top, it's a marble mountain land. Worth checking out!

    Very nice. Take the cycle route and have an amazing weekend.

    First of all for the parking lot. Ikuo Hirayama Museum next to the large free car park. It is also 停menakute in the paid parking around here 10 minutes closer. Hotel, a member of the JAF I listen discount. You are quite broad. East of sunlight Tosho-gu shrine, Kozo-ji Temple in the West is really is intact. Made of white rocks and go back to future appearing heart hills, might expect too much of some are too overwhelmed to. Rises to the top and around the sea and mountain views, is a very good place. Also wheelchair doesn't matter because there is an elevator. White is too, so go in the summer and is quite painful. Go back to 'hell'. Be scary to children as adults may be seriously looking at and thinking my way of life. Cool do to, so is recommended in summer.

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.
