ONOMICHI TEMPLE WALK | THINGS TO DO IN HIROSHIMA, JAPAN | The Tao of David

Are YOU planning a Japan trip in 2018? Looking for things to do in Hiroshima? The Onomichi Temple Walk is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in Japanese culture by checking out numerous Japanese shrines and temples (over 25 in Onomichi), visit Cat Alley and take the ropeway (or walk) up Mount Senko-ji.

However! Onomichi is a typical small Japanese town (almost like a ghost town and pretty deserted) with most local shops being closed on certain weekdays, which is frustrating! To actually find some life in Onomichi head to the area clos to Onomichi Station, where you can find Onomichi U2, with places to shop and eat.

Please note the negativity and sarcasm in this video is exactly that and is a reflection of how it can feel being in Japan for an extended period! Extreme honesty is a trademark of my channel and no offence is intended - Japan is awesome!

Overall Onomichi is probably a great place to visit in Japan, just not in early February when it's freezing cold and snowing!

Exploring Onomichi, Japan | cinematic video

This hilly port town is “Onomichi”, which is one hour and a half away from Hiroshima city by train.
This town is kind of small but there are a bunch of ways to hang out here.

1. Looking around Japanese traditional temples
You can enjoy more than 50 temples here and the atmospheres are more local than Kyoto.

2. Interacting with thousands of adorable cats
According to someone’s estimate, the reason why there are many cats here is that this town has a port and they have came up to the fishes lol

3. Eating the local foods
I think “Onomichi ramen” is the best soy source soup ramen in the world.

Other than these, you can enjoy cycling in the location where have been chosen one of the most beautiful cycling roads in the world by CNN.

When you have any plan to visit around Hiroshima, check this amazing spot for sure!!

Japan's Most Beautiful Cycling Route | Shimanami Kaido Travel Guide

Shimanami Kaido is one of Japan's most famous cycling routes connecting the main island Honshu with Shikoku.

Ever since I heard about this bikeway a few months ago, I knew I had to travel there some day to experience it for myself!!

So, I packed up my bags, bought a Shinkansen ticket and took a spontaneous trip down to Onomichi, Hiroshima.

Shimanami Kaido Bikeway runs between Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture and Imabari in Ehime Prefecture, hopping across 6 islands of the Seto Inland Sea.

You can start your journey from either the Hiroshima side or the Ehime side. I started from the Hiroshima side because the views get better and better as you go along towards Ehime.

So, hope you enjoy the new adventure with me and let me know in the comments something you have always wanted to do!! And then MAKE time for it and actually go do it! :D

Onomichi ✿ Kosanji: Hiroshima's Most Beautiful Secret - 尾道市の耕三寺 - Japan As It Truly Is

Few make it to Onomichi, fewer still to Kosanji - one of Japan's most beautiful temples. The detail and size are astonishing.
Kosanji is not old, though. It was expanded from a villa made in 1927 by an industrialist for his mother. After she died in 1934, in 1936 Kōsanji grew into a temple built in memorial to all mother's love for their children, and the current form took over 3 decades to construct.
One of the most fantastic elements is the Hell Cave, combining elements that remind you of Buddhist cosmology, Disneyland, Halloween, and Dante's Inferno.
For experienced Japan travelers, if you think you have seen some of the buildings elsewhere, you are right - there are clones of the Yomeimon Gate in Nikko and the Byodoin Phoenix Hall in Uji. The amount of detail put into the entire temple is simply astounding, and you haven't seen the best of Japan until you see this place.
People are often surprised how colorful the place is, a lot more like SE Asian temples, and traditionalists may frown at how bright, even gaudy, some things may look. Some Japanese fret at how it's more of a museum than a temple. But after getting templed out in other cities like Kyoto, where everything can become a blur, you certainly won't forget this place long after you leave it.
Additionally, there is the Miraishin no Oka, a massive stone structure at the top of the hill made of marble shipped in from Italy.
Sadly, few travelers know this place exists, and they leave Onomichi thinking it is just a quaint hillside walk though some humdrum small temples.

Onomichi Backstreets

A quick walk through some of the narrow little backstreets of Onomichi, Hiroshima, Japan

Episode 35 - Japan / Onomichi, Hiroshima & Yudanaka

JAPAN: ONOMICHI, HIROSHIMA & NAGANO
Our last days in Japan! After a few more visits to the Kyoto temples close to the train station, we left Kyoto for Onomichi by train. Daniel had read a lot of nice things about this town located 280km on the Japanese sea coast. A lot of small islands are connected by bridges and ferries to the main island and bicycle ways have been specifically set for cyclists to ride from one island to the other. And those who know Daniel, will now understand why we decided to stop in Onomichi! Eiji who had never done this part of Japan, joined us in Onomichi by car.
We met in the afternoon at the guest house and went for a walk before sunset. We climbed the numerous stairs of this sloppy city before heading to an excellent sushi & sashimi restaurant in the centre of town.

Early morning we left for the harbour to rent our bicycle and start our tour. Daniel and Eiji went for regular ones but Magali wanted to try an e-bike. Unfortunately larger bicycles equipped with electric assistance were all booked so she ended up with one with small wheels, never mind she took it. We then embarked for a quick sea crossing on one of the ferries to reach the first island. The weather was rather cloudy and windy but cycling between the mandarins fields and the Japanese sea was very interesting and nice.

We stopped many times on our way to take pictures and shot the scenery. We bought mandarins directly from the farmer! After crossing 3 bridges and a stop in a very local restaurant to have sashimi octopus which comes directly from the area, we took a boat to come back to our initial starting point. It was an excellent day and we finished it beautifully going to a public bath a few km away, to relax and have dinner on-site.

The next day we left for Hiroshima in the morning and met our host at 88hiroshima guest house. After check-in we left to visit the city centre and the monuments dedicated to the Bomb-A events. It was very informative and also very sad to understand all the suffering the people from Hiroshima endured in 1945 and many years later with the side effects of the radiations. A lot of survivors can be found in the Memorial Park and around the Museum to give their testimony.

We chose to come to Hiroshima to also visit the Miyajima island and its famous Torii. You probably already seen a view of this majestic red door and its picture reflecting in the water. We were actually impressed to find out that there is a lot to do and to see on this island. It is full of temples and pagodas and has of course a main shrine but it is also a good hiking location. We didn’t hike to the top but did take the ropeway all the way up and came down by foot (about 1,5h). The view from the very top of Mt. Misen is very rewarding with a 360 degrees view of the sea, the forests and the sacred sites. We must say we loved Miyajima a lot!

WE SPECIFICALLY ENJOY
The sushis! We became sushi and sashimi addicts to the max! We of course had them before in Switzerland and other places but sushi and sashimi in Japan is a totally different story. Our preferences went to the local salmon, the squid, the octopus and the red snapper. Nigiri sushi were also excellent with a specific note to the Japanese macquerel!
Our brief visit to the Snow Monkey Park in Jigokudani, 45min. North of Nagano. These little creatures are so cute in their hot spring, we think the images speak for themselves!

ACCOMMODATIONS
Hiroshima: we loved staying at the 88 Hiroshima guest house, a traditional Japanese home with a few rooms, a great living room and a kitchen to share with other guests. The place is spotless, peaceful and zen. It is located only 20min. ride by bus from the city centre (nr 29). There is a lot of information on what to do and what to see at the guest house. Kengo, the owner was a backpacker once and he knows the exact the travellers needs. We had a very good rest at your home, thank you again for your warm welcome, we wish you all the best and hope to meet you again in a near future!
Yudanaka/Yamanouchi: Zen Hostel, a lovely renovated old ryokan very close to the train station. Tatami rooms and dormitories are available as well as a nice cafe/lounge.

RESTAURANTS
Onomichi: Hanaakari, one of the best sashimi we ever tried.
Onomichi: SpA 尾道平原温泉 ぽっぽの湯, the restaurant is part of a private SpA with a lot of facilities. The SpA is very popular and it is nice to have dinner in a typical Japanese uniform/suit right after a relaxed bath. The food was excellent and reasonably price. We could taste the Yamakake Donburi once again (dish of red tuna and sticky mountain yam that we firstly discovered in one of the Onsen during our first days in Japan).

EXPLORING SHIMANAMI KAIDO しまなみ海道

The Shimanami Kaido crosses the Seto Inland Sea for 70 kilometers from Onomichi City through six islands to Imabari City on Shikoku. The whole course has a dedicated cycling route, keeping cyclists away from the traffic and close to the beautiful scenery of the Seto Inland Sea. You can customize your journey, choosing to cycle the whole course, or opting to complete small sections and return to Onomichi on a boat or a bus.
