As is often the case, the port town was full of narrow streets and steep hills. Every street preserved a handful of old houses, and every hill guaranteed a historic view of historically important port town, thanks to the historical irony that the modernization put...More

Spent the afternoon wandering around, before going to Sensuijima. Not much to do, but a nice glimpse into Japanese life outside of the big cities. Convenient bus, just 30 minutes from Fukuyama station. Not much English anywhere, but that was half the fun!

We were traveling from Miyajima in the direction of Himeji with the actual destination being an area called Washuzan. The driving distance was almost 200 kilometers so we decided to find a stop area midway for lunch. Our choice was a small detour to Tomonoura....More

Certainly only a few things to see and visit but if you have time, it is worth losing it (in the right manner) here. Time passes by slowly, the small wharf, the small town and the small island across the town (+ some sea kayak)...More

Tomonoura is an accent fishing village that has preserved old Japanese styled houses. Calmed atmosphere, also it's home of the "homeishu " a medicinal liquor that suppose good for health.

Narrow streets and plenty of temples. If you arrive by car it is best to park it in the first possible parking lot as the streets do make navigating difficult especially when opposite traffic comes. Easily combined with the Abuto Kannon.

No wonder Miyazaki was inspired by this town when he visited it. Lots of temples, lovely streets, the smallest bridge ever (sasayaki bashi) and plenty of useful mini-maps near each landmark to help you orientate to the next spot. People were quite friendly too.
