Take a gondola up Mount Hinoyama for panoramic views of the Seto Inland Sea, the Sea of Japan and the Kanmonkyo suspension bridge over the Kanmon Straits. You can also hike to the summit in about an hour. Cherry blossoms and azaleas make this lush peak particularly beautiful in spring.
See the elegant white and red gate at the Akama-jingu Shinto shrine. Inside, there's a tranquil pool surrounded by bright-red columns. The grounds also contain Nanamori-zuka (seven mounds) – memorials to the fallen Heike warriors, fronted by traditional stone lanterns – and a statue of Hoichi the Earless, a mythological character you may remember from the classic film "Kwaidan".
