"Jodoji" in Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture is said to have been built by Prince Shotoku and is famous for the benefit of praying for victory. It is also popular as a first visit spot in Hiroshima. And what I would like to recommend most is the view from Jodoji! Since it is on a slope, you can see the Seto Inland Sea and Mukaishima, and it is a superb view.

Itsukushima Shrine on Iwashi Island in Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture. Iwashi Island is an island next to Mukaishima on the Shimanami Kaido and is connected by a bridge!

It's a little-known spot, so you can spend a relaxing time on the sandy beach while gazing at the spectacular scenery. There is free parking!
