Best time to see: Early April to mid-April
Onomichi is known as the city of slopes. Senkoji Park, which stands on a small mountain, is a symbol of the city. Spring, when the Yoshino cherry trees and Yaezakura cherry trees color the park, is the ideal season for looking over the cityscape spreading across at the blossom-covered feet of the hills and the islands of the Seto Inland Sea. The paper lantern lit night is also a fantastic sight.
