For a truly special stay at an historic hotel, take a look at Onomichi Hansei. Believe it or not, this hotel has roots tracing back to the late 1700s, in the days of the Tokugawa shogunate. Over the years, the restaurant underwent several changes in ownership and even functionalities — sometimes serving as a dance hall, other times as a culture center. Finally, in 2020, it was reborn as Onomichi Hansei: a new hotel to honor the establishment’s history.

The hotel itself embodies its long legacy as a renowned restaurant; the on-site eatery serves a kaiseki (multi-course banquet) dinner sourced from the freshest local ingredients. Seafood from the Seto Inland Sea plays a big role in these dishes — even in the breakfast!

 

5. Aki Grand Hotel

Miyajima is a small island less than an hour from the central city of Hiroshima and easily accessible by ferry. Its proximity makes it a popular day trip destination, but we recommend staying overnight for the full experience. And if you stay the night in Miyajima, you can’t go wrong with the beautifully sleek Miyajima Grand Hotel Arimoto.
