This is the 6th and final article of a series of Onomichi travel. Following my previous post, I will post snap photos of Onomichi shopping district and seafront street.

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.

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.

Seafront street runs in parallel with Onomichi Hon Dori Sho-tengai (Onomichi Shopping Arcade). As the name suggests, I saw sea and ships.

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 🙂
