STORY

Onomichi is a city facing the Seto Inland Sea that is surrounded by three mountains and many islands.
The Onomichi Channel flows through the center of the city and has always acted as a route for culture, industry and people.
Since the Middle Ages, this water way has been instrumental in making Onomichi the most important port in the Seto Inland Sea.
Many temples, gardens, and houses were erected in the limited space between the mountains and the Onomichi Channel, and as a result, the miniature garden city with its intricate alleys and slopes still looks much the same today.
The maze of alleyways and hilly landscapes offer glorious views and scenery within the confines of a small coastal town.
Onomichi’s charms continue to attract many visitors.
