  • 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.
