Top things to do in Tomonoura (鞆の浦), a port town of Fukuyama City, Hiroshima. It has become stages for Hollywood and Ghibli movies and fascinated people all aver the world. Then, we selected top places to go from among the City's Pride by travelers actually have been there.


Here is the scene of Studio Ghibli's "Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea" . I think this scenery attracts the people all over the world.

Fukuzenji Temple Taichoro

The room was a guest house for VIPs from abroad. The Korean emissary admired the superb view as the most beautiful from Korea eastward. An admission fee is 200 Yen.

There are some cultural assets and the historical buildings remainds in this retro town. Shopping and walking on many alleys will be fun like timeslip travel!

Municipal Ferry Irohamaru

Iroha-maru is got aboard by Kaien-tai Ryoma commanded. It's just a short time ferryboat to Sensui island, but like a dreaming cruise.

Sensuijima Island

The five colors rock is only here in Japan. The place collects power of heaven and earth and become energetic and spiritual power spot.


This restaurant's special is sea breams. I think I can eat the bowl of Tai-Chazuke forever for it's light but has an elegant flavor of sea breams.

Onfunayado Iroha

The superb food is sea bream grown in the Setouchi sea pickled in kelp and Japanese Sake. I was surprised at unique rich taste.

Tomonoura @ café

The café is in front of the stone night lamp. We can enjoy enough the nostalgic atmosphere watching the Tomo-no-ura bay.

Ken-chan no Iriko-ya

You can buy additive‐free dried fish grown in Setouchi sea that are sold out by the evening. I recommend the dried squid 'ChiiChii Ika' specially.
