Tomonoura, Hiroshima Pref. is located in the center of Seto Inland Sea. It prospered as a port town in ancient times. In Seto Inland Sea, the tide rises and falls twice a day and it reverses every six hours. Tomonoura was the anchor ground for the trading sail boats without engines to avert the adverse current and catch the tide. This scenic area was designated as the national park for the first time in Japan.
Having become inactive with the fading of marine traffic, old town scenery, fish boat tied up near a stepped pier, a lot of cats and a call of marine birds are still left in Tomonoura.
These days, this town has got a lot of attention as the place where Hayao Miyazaki, the animation creator of Studio Ghibli had worked over his plot for the movie “Ponyo on the Cliff by the sea”.
