     We were staying at Auberge in innoshima crossed shimanami-on this day, after the Park senkoji Temple.  Towards the climb down fast, heading to the Park senkoji Temple Road, where one lane was a narrow road some. Leave your car at the parking lot of the Park senkoji Temple, aimed at the temple. In the top of the Observatory, then enjoyed the view while eating a Mandarin orange soft. For the building there are many with a slight space between the mountains and the sea, Onomichi water service between the Park is only about 200 m wide, looked like a river.  Onomichi is called the 'Garden City' was pleasant landscape. Compared with the famous Temple is built on the slopes of such mountains, so was very small temples. Wonderful views from its culture and environment.

    This park offers spectacular panoramic view of the city from the hill top.Two observatories offer great views especially during the cherry blossom season and I guess during the autumn too. There's also few shrines besides a pagoda and the Onomichi City Art Museum. Take the roapway up to the park and walk down the hill on your return.

    A pretty cool temple on top of a mountain with great views. Probably one of quite few "must see" sightseeing spots in Onomichi.

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.
