Onomichi is known as a city of hills. Senkoji Park is situated atop a hill there, and is one of the symbols of the city.
In spring when the Yoshino and Yae cherry trees in the park are in bloom, it is the perfect season to look out at the cityscape at the foot of the hill, and the islands of the Seto Inland Sea beyond.
The park also takes on a magical appearance when lit by paper lanterns at night.
