Talking of Onomichi, Onomichi Ramen is one of the local favorite cuisine. So I had it near Onomichi station, when I arrived at or left Onomichi.
“Sakuraya”, which I stopped by when I arrived at Onomichi.
“Tani”, I stopped by as last supper when I left Onomichi.
This old house is called “Gaudi House”. A local non-profit organization has dveloped a project to revive the vacant house. Now the Gaudi House is famous for filming location.
“Slope” is one of the key words which characterize Onomichi. There are many picturesque slopes around Onomichi and I took photos over two days.
To begin with, Senkoji street. The street is often used for drama or movie location. I walked around the street on the first day.
On the second day, I took many snaps of slopes while I strolled around temples and shrines.
Onomichi Movie Archives
As I have mentioned several times, Onomichi is often used for filming location. “Onomichi Movie Archives” is a movie museum that show movie pictures, old film projectors and movie posters.
That’s it for the article about Onomichi station, Gaudi House, slopes and Onomichi Movie Archives as a series of the travel to Onomichi. In the next article, I will write about shopping district and seafront street in Onomichi, as the series final.
