Onomichi is a town located in the southeast part of Hiroshima Prefecture. It faces with Seto Island Sea. For many years, it has prospered as a distribution center of the physical distribution by marine business. Since this area is inserted into the mountain of the north side, and the sea on the south, there is little flat ground and the surface of a mountain is crowded with a residence or temples. Therefore, there are many hills and they are called the town of the hill. This photograph is taken on the way to Senkouji temple. The steep stairs which lead to a temple continue for a long line. If we will go up ascent these stairs and turns the slope to the right, we will arrive in Senkoji. From the temple, the beltlike long Onomichi strait spread out under its view. It appears here well also as a stage of a literary work or a movie. It is the town which the movie supervisor's Yasujirō Ozu used by preference for the stage of the movie. Since I walked to the temple in the early morning, I only passed by several residents on the way.

A precious collection of three photos. Each one of them could be a main entry all by itself. I like this one because of the perspective and the challenge it offers. The stairs are challenging the viewer to climb.
I like The Slope to Senkoji for its cute narrow walkway and the manner in which it leads the eyes to the temple. (I would have loved to see the right edge of the temple roof.)
I like Onomichi Strait for its panoramic view of the harbor and the hinterland, with pretty mountains.
Thank you for today's lovely "three for the price of one" upload.

I like the #2 WS with the view over the bay and docks, it gave a fairly good idea about the area around the place taken this picture.
By itself, the upstairs view has good depth and clarity. Nicely presented.
