I revisited Onomichi and it was my first attempt to take photos with my new camera (SONY α7 II) – for the background to buy SONY α7 II and why I chose Onomichi, please see the related article. As a series of the travel to Onomichi, I will post several article by themes. In this article (the 6th article), I will write about Shopping district and Seafront street in Onomichi.

Onomichi Hon Dori Sho-tengai (Onomichi Shopping Arcade)
Onomichi Hon Dori Sho-tengai (Onomichi Shopping Arcade) is a shopping district that runs over 1km on the east side of Onomichi station. There are old-style shops around there.
Entrance of the shopping arcade.
There are several cafes along the street and I visited two of them.
“AKUBI CAFE” is open along with “ANEGO no NEDOKO”, a guest house in Onomichi. The cafe is unique in its old-style atmosphere.

Yuyu is a cafe that renovates an old public bathhouse. The cafe also sells souvenir goods. I visited it two years ago and revisited it this time.
Shukaen is the most famous Ramen restaurant in Onomichi, located near the shopping district. There were long queues, but I visited it to have a lunch.
I ordered Yakisoba (pan-fried noodle).
Seafront street runs in parallel with Onomichi Hon Dori Sho-tengai (Onomichi Shopping Arcade). As the name suggests, I saw sea and ships.

The final photo was taken at Onomichi station.
That’s it for the article about Shopping district and Seafront street in Onomichi.
To summarize the trip, Onomichi has many photo spots and I enjoyed walking around there. In addition, compared to large cities such as Tokyo, I felt time passed more slowly, so I was able to be relaxed. I had visited it two weeks later, I would have been able to see cherry blossoms there. Next time, I would like to visit Onomichi in April.
Regarding my next trip, I am going to visit Kyoto see cherry bossoms. I will post several article in my blog, so please stay tuned 🙂
