Onomichi is a cozy tourist area along the Seto Inland Sea with shopping streets and shrines. Recently, young people are fascinated with the city and started their own businesses, creating fashionable spots which are becoming popular among the young.
We will visit places where you can take photos of cute and popular food/items/scenery.
All shops have lovely, tasty items such as puddings, chocolates, and lattes with cute drawings♪ You can also buy original goods made by Onomichi-loving artists.
Onomichi is also called a cat city as you will see cats along the narrow slopes and stairs!
