A picturesque port town at the southern end of Fukuyama city, Tomo no Ura offers scenic views and an insight into Japan’s age of sails. Traditional dark wooden facades, a lovely 11 m (33 ft) tall Edo-period stone lighthouse, cobblestone steps, and a historic pier and old docks all preserve the Edo atmosphere. Famous for the production of "homeishu," medical liquor said to induce longevity, the port has a museum dedicated to it. You can also visit four temples and a shrine, as well as museum of history and folklore. Tomo Port sits 30 minutes by bus from Fukuyama.

  • I stopped in Tomonoura before venturing on toward Fukuyama. I fell in love with this town, it might be one of my favorite small villages in Japan. Driving was a little intense as the streets were...

  • There’s really nothing much here for tourists. Similar to taking a trip to the outer islands in HK. But there’s no restaurants here, only coffee houses.

  • What you should know before try to visit Tonamura: - It's a famous fishing village close to Fukuyama (about 30 mins). - ‎Ticket bus is 550¥ (one way). - ‎It's a quite place, and pleanty of sightspots to enjoyed a whole day as: Nunakuma temple, Old lighthouse or Louji temple. - ‎It's a little expensive, but it's possible find some places with good prices. Bring some snacks. - ‎There is a turist boat to give a look around the small islands beside the port. - ‎Even if you spend the entire day here, you will feel that you missing visit a lot of places. - ‎At 5pm close almost everything, and it becomes a ghost village. I highly recommend visit this place.
  • A very quiet town by the sea with narrow lanes and traditional Japanese houses. There are many temples and shrines, all of which seem to have a pretty long history.
