Visit the photogenic spots of Tomonoura
Located at the southern tip of Fukuyama City, Tomonoura is a picturesque port that exudes an old-fashioned fishing town atmosphere.
In recent years, it’s become a popular filming destination for both local and international movies, including “The Wolverine” and “Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea” by Studio Ghibli.
It’s a pleasant place to stroll while enjoying the sea breezes and photographing some of the port’s famous landmarks. Don’t miss the Taichoro reception hall of Fukuzenji Temple that affords magnificent views of Tomonoura and stay until the sun sets to see the famous Joyato lighthouse that illuminates the waterfront.
