Chodo Fruits Road My Neighbor Totoro Sanpo町道・フルーツロード「となりのトトロ・さんぽ」

Other Sightseeing Spot

A “musical road” built in Sera Town, Sera County, Hiroshima Prefecture, a town dotted with numerous tourist-oriented farms. A 660 meter section of the northbound Chodo Yasuda Kamo Line (aka, the “Fruits Road”), bumps in the road will cause the tires of a vehicle to vibrate in such a way as to play the song “Sanpo” from the hit movie “My Neighbor Totoro” when driven over at 60 kilometers per hour. Designed to prevent speeding and promote traffic safety in a heavy tourism area, the road itself has become a tourism destination to enjoy while driving.

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.
