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.
