Coast / Beach

"This port town is located on the southeastern edge of the Numakuma Peninsula. It is characterized by the many historical sites, shrines and temples that dot the area. You can see the Ota Family Residence, a nationally-designated Important Cultural Property, and Enfukuji Temple, which was used as a dorm for the Kishu clan when negotiating after the sinking of the Iroha-maru at the end of the Tokugawa period (1853-1867). In addition, there are many restaurants where you can enjoy dishes such as ""chirimen"" and specialty sea bream cuisine, and souvenir shops selling specialty products such as homeishu, traditional medicinal liquor. It is also known as the location of the movie ""The Wolverine"" starring Hugh Jackman."

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
