    Access to the temple to have tickets only, but should be available in the evening aerial tramway, so still that. It is nice to go aerial tramway from the precincts of the temple.

    Return of the ropeway is a steep slope of Onomichi city look, why it was fun. Well take a look at the city, and the roof the roof the roof. Onomichi displays do not land on buildings and once again Hill made me realize.

    From Onomichi station about 20 minutes walk Arcade, arrived at the station. And I'm running to every 15 minutes. The departure. Weekday daytime's nearly 20 domestic and overseas passengers. Guests can enjoy below Onomichi city while listening to the tourism announcement. Announce women's words is not clear.

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.
