Onomichi is a beautiful and unusual town on the Seto Inland Sea.
Here, at the edge of the Inland Sea, where signs of Japan s aging and the countryside s depopulation are everywhere, seven out of eight of the owners of the coffee shops I visited seemed to be well under 40, and their small shops were full of interest and life.
Through the backstreets of Onomichi, twisting trails lead down from Senkoji Park to the sea, a mix of natural and man-made beauty.
A giant rubber duck is floating at Onomichi port, during Umi Festa being held in Onomichi, Mihara and Fukuyama simultaneously.
This Japanese style mountaintop hotel, located in Senkoji Park, offers stunning views over Onomichi, excellent facilities and is the perfect base for exploring the city.
Neko no Hosomichi or Cat Alley in Onomichi is hidden away between the sloping streets that wind around the town. It connects art, the town, people and greenery into one unique experience that you will not forget.
The temple walk of Onomichi in Hiroshima holds more than the obvious. See what a talented artist did to revive a small section of town.
There s a lot more to Onomichi s mountaintop Senkoji Park than the touristy attractions for which it is best known.
