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!

HIROSHIMA ATOMIC BOMB SURVIVOR'S STORY | THINGS TO DO IN HIROSHIMA | The Tao of David

Hiroshima was hit by an atomic bomb in August 1945. Today, you can visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, Peace Park and Museum to learn more about this horrendous event which affected thousands of people.

Another way of learning more and discovering information not available in museums is to speak to Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Survivors, another fascinating addition to your list of Things to Do in Hiroshima.

Visit Social Book Cafe in Hiroshima on the 6th of each month to speak to survivors of the Atomic Bomb. In this video, I talk about the story of Takaaki Morikawa, who was just 6 years old at the time of the Hiroshima bomb. He provided fascinating and intreresting information relating to his experience during and after the atomic bomb.

Please note that I chose not to film the actual meeting for this video as I didn't feel comfortable; ie I didn't feel it would be respectful. Why not visit Social Book Cafe in Hiroshima to hear Takaaki's amazing and unimaginable story for yourselves!

Japan Travel: Temple Walk, Hirayama Museum, Festivals, Cycling Onomichi, Hiroshima 04 Moopon

Japan Travel: Temple Walk, Hirayama Museum, Festivals, Cycling and More, Onomichi, Hiroshima 04 Moopon

An old fashioned town located along the Seto Inland Sea in the eastern part of Hiroshima Prefecture, Onomichi (尾道) has many interesting sites and places for locals and tourists to explore. In addition to the temples, museums, parks and gardens, Onomichi is the “Honshu” mainland point for the Shimanami Kaido Bridge. And is the major port for the small islands within the Seto Inland Sea.

Onomichi is the home to many temples. In the past, rich merchants donated money to build temples within the port town to ensure prosperity. Visitors may choose to explore Onomichi’s famous “Temple Walk” which leads visitors to 25 temples. However, as Onomichi is also famous for its steep slopes, proper footwear is recommended.

Onomichi is the home to many respected authors, such as Fumiko Hayashi, author of “Horoki” (“Vagabond’s Song” in English) which was adapted into the anime “Wandering Days.” Artists will enjoy looking the museums such as the Hirayama Museum, famous for Artist Hirayama’s Silk Road desert landscapes paintings of Iran, Iraq and China. Many movies have been filmed here, including Yasujiro Ozu’s globally famous film “Tokyo Monogatari.”

Cyclists love Onomichi and its access to the Shimanami Kaido Bridge, the bridge which connects Honshu to Shikoku. The Shimanami Kaido Bridge has exits and entrances for drivers and cyclists to visit the small islands lying in the Seto Inland Sea. Onomichi, being the Honshu home of the bridge, has cycle rental stores, repair stores, even bicycle storage for those who opt the island hopping via ship.

Yet, there is more to the city of Onomichi. From the old-fashioned family owned business in the covered shopping arcade near the train station, to the modern U2 cycling support facility, there is something for everyone here. Traditional Japan meets Modern Japan with family fun festivals such as the summer fireworks festival or autumn Betcha Matsuri (where local “demons” run around hitting children on the head to knock some sense into them). Beautiful cherry blossom parks in the spring, artwork and history, cycling and temple touring…all available in the small, port city of Onomichi.

Japan Travel: Falling in Love with Japanese Culture on the Temple Walk in Onomichi, Hiroshima 11

Japan Travel: Falling in Love with Japanese Culture on the Temple Walk in Onomichi, Hiroshima 11 Moochan

Visitors to Hiroshima often overlook Onomichi, a quaint port town along the Seto Inland Sea, located about 90 minutes via local train from Hiroshima Station. With its steep hills and sloping geography, Onomichi did not suffer many damages during the war. As a result, many historic buildings are still intact, allowing visitors a glimpse of Japanese history.

Onomichi is famous for its temples. Being a port town, in the past, successful merchants donated heavily to build temples to ensure the town’s prosperity. Visitors can explore the 25 temples along the “Temple Walk”, a popular temple route. Visitors can find maps of “Temple Walk” available at the Tourist Information Office at Onomichi Station. The route is marked and there are many signs as well. Though the route is only 2.5 kilometers, as Onomichi is famous for its slopes, proper footwear is strongly advised.

The most famous temple on the Temple Walk would have to be Senkoji Temple. Founded by Kobo Daishi in 806, Senkoji is located on the mountain. Though visitors can hike up the mountain, most visitors opt to take the ropeway. Visitors may be interested in the 15 meter tall Tama no Iwa or Jewel Rock. This rock is said to have glowed all night illuminating the surrounding sea. The temple has many miniature Jizo statues which are also popular. The park above the temple is a beautiful place to rest and take in the beautiful surrounding. Please note, this park is quite crowded during the cherry blossom season, as the Senkoji Park is one of hundred most beautiful cherry blossom places in Japan.

Jidoji Temple, the final temple on the Temple Walk is also quite popular. Dating back to the early 7th century, it is said to the oldest temple in this region. Visitors should take time to take in the main hall and the 2 storey pagoda as they are both National Treasures. Though the entrance to the temple is free, a nominal fee (600 yen) will allow visitors into the temple buildings. The temple has many beautiful, historic statues which are registered as Cultural Treasures. Though there is a Japanese guided tour, the beauty of the artwork on the fusuma, sliding door, elegant rooms and breathtaking paintings holds no language barriers. The temple’s well maintained karesansui style garden is also a point of interest.

There are many things to take in, experience and observe on Onomichi’s Temple Walk. This 2.5 kilometer route on the varying terrains allows visitors to understand Japan’s proud cultural past.

Nanzoin: The Most Beautiful Temple You've Never Heard Of - 南蔵院●福岡県篠栗町 - Japan As It Truly Is

Nanzoin has Kyoto BEATEN COLD. It may not have its history, but it'd be very hard to find a prettier temple in Japan - and it's free!
Nanzōin is really so unknown that it should be classified a state secret. It's in Sasaguri Town, Fukuoka, and only about 20 minutes by train from Hakata Station. It offers a giant Manekineko Cat statue, countless small statues all with a different appearance, a giant menacing ogre, and the true gem, the Great Buddha, finished in 1995, that is reclining and is 41m long and 11m tall.
Few tourist experts have ever heard of Nanzoin. Few Japanese know of it either, actually. But it is a major temple among a pilgrimage route, and you can often see small groups of elderly going to pray there. It claims a million visitors a year, but that averages about 2700 people a day, and as you can see here at one of the best times to go, it was hardly crowded. Nevertheless, Nanzoin is one of the finest places in Japan you will ever visit.
Go and see it before the tourist books and guides find out about it and send the tourist hordes stampeding to it.

Exploring Myoo-in Temple (明王院) in Fukuyama, Hiroshima

On a trip to Fukuyama I decided to wake up at 6:30 am and take a short walk to Myoo-in Temple. It was a cold and dreary morning so the lighting on my iPhone isn't the greatest. At Myoo-in Temple I saw a torii gate and decided to proceed under it to see where the path led. I ended up hiking up a small mountain under the rain and catching a nice view of Fukuyama. The Myoo-in Temple is said to be constructed back in 807, with the main hall being constructed in 1321 and the pagoda in 1348. The Five Story Pagoda seen here is the 5th oldest Pagoda in Japan. The main object of worship at this site is a statue of an Eleven-faced Kannon. The temple has two National Treasures (the main hall and pagoda) and one Important Cultural Property (the Eleven-faced Kannon).

KOSANJI-ONOMICHI TEMPLE WALK

Japan Travel: Island Hopping via Ferry along the Shimanami Kaido, Onomichi, Hiroshima 10 Moopon

Japan Travel: Island Hopping via Ferry along the Shimanami Kaido, Onomichi, Hiroshima 10

Shimanami Kaido Bridge, the world’s longest series of suspension bridges, connects Honshu (Japan’s main island) with Shikoku. Visitors can enter or exit the bridge from either Onomichi City in Hiroshima Prefecture on the Honshu side or from Imabari City in Ehime Prefecture on the Shikoku side. This 60 kilometer long bridge-toll road can be utilized by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Ferry service is also frequent along the Shimanami Kaido Bridge. Passengers can visit the islands via ferry which stops at the various Seto Inland Sea islands with the Shimanami Kaido Bridge in the background. There are 14 lines so visitors will have many options. Many, though not all, allow their passengers to carry bicycles on board. This may be because the 70 kilometer bicycle path (one way) the bridge provides may be tiring roundtrip. As there are ferries which stop at the islands, cyclists who decide not to continue the cycle journey can use the ferry, instead, to continue their Shimanami Kaido journey.

Though there are 14 lines, the following two may be helpful to foreign tourists.
** Onomichi Ekimae Port - Shige Higashi Port - Sawa Port - Setoda Port:
The one-way journey will take about 40 minutes with a cost of 820 yen. Passengers who wish to bring their bicycles on board will need to pay an additional 160 yen. There are 9 boats per day.
Visitors will find the Hirayama Museum and Kosanji Temple located near both Setoda Port and Sawa Port. And there are cycling terminals located near all four of the ports. However, only four of the nine boats per day stop at Sawa Port.
**Imabari Port - Tomoura Port - Kinoura Port - Habu Port:
The one-way journey takes 75 minutes with a cost of 1750 yen. There are 8 boats per day.
There is a cycling terminal located near Habu Port. This line is served by a high speed ferry. However, please note, there are a few boats on this line which do not allow bicycles on board.

Whether by ferry, bicycle, bus or car, Shimanami Kaido Bridge has a lot to offer its visitors. Whether it be going on the Tide Ride (a boat ride on the one of the fastest streams) on Oshima Island, visiting the Very Important Cultural Property of the Home of the Yoshihara Family on Mukaishima Island or just lying down to watch the sunset on Sunset Beach in Setoda (on Ikuchijima Island), visitors will enjoy the variety of attractions available along the Shimanami Kaido Bridge.

Cycling the Shimanami Kaido Cycling Route near Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan

The Shimanami Kaido Cycle Route links the main islands of Honshu and Shikoku in Japan through a series of bridges and islands in the Seto Inland Sea.

The 70km cycle trail takes you between islands across a series of impressive bridges with special cycle lanes and for added fun there's a network of ferries to help you get back. We rented bikes in Onomichi and set off to explore some of the trail which is a great day out for those who enjoy cycling.
