the hilltop offers panoramic views of Onomichi and is particularly splendid during Sakura as cherry trees line the slope.

This ropeway / cable car affords a different perspective to the town below either ascending or descending. Reasonably priced depending on the currency rate. Note that it goes every 15 minutes from 9.00am to 5.15pm.

this is the only show in town but fun ... closes at 5:30 so make sure you're up by then (and finished if you want to go down too)

I visited here around 7:00 a.m. but the ropeway wasn't running yet.It starts at 9:00 a.m.But you don't have to worry so much because the way to the Senkoji park is not so far than you imagine .If not running just walk up!

Great walk up here, we had fun walking up town between the temples and alleys. The view from here is nice, you can see the islands around, bridge and city. Good facilities (WiFi and toilets) and a small restaurant that serves coffee. Nice viewing platform.

A very quick gondola up Mt. Senkoji with panoramic view of Onomichi and Setoda Island. Beautiful, easy and fast.

It's a good mode of transportation, especially if you don't want to walk. I wouldn't make a trip out of it or anything though.

The panoramic view of the bay and the hilly islands from the observation station at the top of the ropeway is breathtaking. If you read some Japanese, do take your time to walk downhill, along the path where poets found their inspiration over the centuries...More
