Japan travel guide

Japan - Hiroshima & Western Honshu (Chapter)

14th Edition Sep 2015

This is the Hiroshima & Western Honshū chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.

Travellers to Western Honshū will find two contrasting coastlines. San-yō (literally ‘sunny side of the mountains’), looking out over the Inland Sea, boasts the bigger cities, the narrow-laned portside and hillside towns, ceramic history and the bullet train. On the other side of the dividing Chūgoku mountain range, San-in is all about an unhurried pace, onsen villages that see few foreigners, historic sites, wind-battered coastlines and great hospitality.
