  • Climb while watching a poem engraved on the stone monument of literature on the road went up in the car, but I thought (we went down one). Temple was enshrined and senju Kannon and Kobo-Daishi Temple. Watching from the town of Onomichi, great views, such as bays and inlets. Statue and poem engraved on rocks from the entrance area at the back, look around, it's fun. A stone statue of the Chinese zodiac.

  • From the Park of the mountain scenery is impressive even under a cloudy sky. And no matter how beautiful this blue sky, blue sea. Descended the stone steps from the Park senkoji Temple. Stone distortion, bad feet. Out of sheer rock between the worship hall for some. Let me around much after the main temple is the main temple to pray deep impression. People who go out motivation there can climb the rocks on a leash. Down the Hill, you can find cats.

  • Beautiful and great views. This is where the walking tour of onomichi starts out endd
  • 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.
  • Very nice view of the surrounding area. Gardens are nice to explore and walk around.
  • Awesom views. I recommend hiking the path.

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.
