Fukuyama 福山

Fukuyama Castle

Cathedral, Fukuyama

Mostly forgotten by the tourists, Fukuyama is a pleasant stop on the way to Tomo-no-ura. An impressive reconstructed castle stands just in front of the train station and is well worth a look (entry to the grounds is free, although admission to the dungeon costs ¥200).

Coming from Hiroshima, you will notice a newly built Gothic cathedral coming right out of 13th-century France. It is quite unique and for the least surprising to find such an edifice in Japan, or simply in Asia.

How to get there

Trains to/from Fukuyama take 30min from Kurashiki (¥740), 20min from Onomichi (¥400) or 1h40min from Hiroshima (¥1890).
