Where is Onomichi

Onomichi is located in the eastern part of Hiroshima Prefecture. The population is approximately 130,000. It is famous as a city of temples, and there are numerous temples in the city. It is the entrance to the Shimanami Kaido(a big bridge to Shikoku), which connects to Shikoku Island, and many islands can be visited using Onomichi as a base. It is also possible to tour the islands by cycling.

How to get Onomichi

From Tokyo, it takes about 3.5 hours to Fukuyama Station by Shinkansen bullet train, and from there it is a 30-minute transfer to a conventional train for a total of 4 hours. The price is about 150$. From Osaka, you can take a highway bus or the Shinkansen just like from Tokyo. From Hiroshima City, it takes only 1 hour by train. The price is about 10$.
