Onomichi: Historical Seaside Japanese town

- Advertisement -

2020 Japan Cycling Trip Day 3: Bike ride tour of historic Onomichi City. This is the main starting point of the Shimanami Kaido cycling road on the Hiroshima prefecture side.

Onomichi is a lovely historic Japanese town bordering the Seto inland sea. There are so many old Japanese buildings and temples built into the mountainside, and on the other side there are many ports and Oceanside businesses.

Many cyclists come here from domestically in Japan and internationally to cycle the Shimanami Kaido cycling route, but many Japanese people also visit Onomichi as a tourist destination.

Thuong and I really loved this town, and wish we had booked an extra night at a hotel nearby so we could explore more.

Two Wheel Cruisehttps://twowheelcruise.com/
Hi, my name is Cruise! I’m an American expat cyclist living & working in Japan. Two Wheel Cruise, or TWC for short, is my BLOG / YouTube Channel about my life abroad. I mostly talk about cycling and life in Japan, but I also like to talk about food, travel, hiking, learning Japanese, etc.. You get the point. I’ve been blogging on and off through various platforms for years, and in 2017 I decided to start making videos on YouTube, thus began the “Two Wheel Cruise” project. Since starting the channel, I’ve managed to get married and my (Vietnamese) wife, Thuong, often joins me in our cycling VLOGS around Japan.
