A port town known as a tourist destination dotted with famous places and historic sites related to Ryoma Sakamoto. There are several places where the movie was set and filmed, including "Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea" by Studio Ghibli, etc.. It is also one of the most scenic spots in the Seto Inland Sea, which was designated as the first national park in Japan. The idyllic scenery of many islands floating in the calm waters of Seto is soothing.
Homeishu (Houmei Liquor or 保命酒) is famous as a specialty of Tomonoura. Homeishu started in 1659 as a medicinal liquor made by a Chinese herb doctor soaking 16 kinds of herbs in a tomb. The unique flavor is addictive, so if you have time, we recommend that you stop by.
