Tomonoura is an picturesque port town located in Fukuyama City with more than 1000 years of history. For a long time the port was a pivotal crossroads for trade in the Seto Inland Sea. The stone lantern and stone pier in the harbor were built during the Edo period (1603-1867). One of Tomonoura's popular souvenirs is Homei-shu - a medicinal liquor thought to be effective against cold and fatigue. The view of the Seto Inland Sea from the Edo period guesthouse Taicho-ro in Tomonoura is so picturesque, a Korean envoy famously remarked "it's the most beautiful view in Japan".
