Onomichi is an historic port town located in Hiroshima that includes part of the 60km Shimanamikaido cycling road between 2 of Japan's largest islands, Honshu and Shikoku.
It is popular as a day trip destination from nearby Hiroshima city and famous for its mountain top Senkoji temple walk.
Spend a day in Onomichi city samplying the famous Onomichi ramen while visiting the numerous cafes and art galleries.
Feeling energetic, rent a bicycle for the scenic ride over the Shimanamikaido sea road hopping island to island over massive suspension bridges with panoramic island and sea views comparable to Vietnam's Halong Bay.
Getting tired, return your rental bicycle on the islands or put it on a scenic ferry back to Setoda town or Onomichi city for a relaxed evening on the boardwalks by the sea. There is nothing more beautiful than the lights shining off the calm water below.
Finally end your day at one of the numerous Japanese Izakaya bars chatting with friendly locals practicing their often limited English. Thank you google translate!
