Onomichi is an old-timey port with a tranquil vibe. Set in eastern Hiroshima Prefecture, it’s distinguished by sloped lanes, traditional houses, and heritage sites. A designated walking route, called “Temple Walk,” gives visitors the opportunity to soak in all the nostalgia while trekking up and down the narrow corridors. Prefer not to hoof it? A ropeway runs to the hilltop Senkō-ji Park, prized for its 9th-century Buddhist temple and stunning views. Nipponophiles won’t want to miss these hidden gems you can only see in Japan.
