There isn’t a person in Tomo who doesn’t know Tsūdō Hiroaki, a local celebrity known for being the director of the Tomonoura Museum of History and Folklore in Fukuyama City. He will be your walking guide to escort you on your Tomosanpo Walking Tour to your room from the front desk after check-in. You won’t be taken past any of the typical sites; instead, you’ll be shown all the hidden paths and local movie locations with hidden histories and stories that are sure to surprise you. Mr Tsūdō says there are many things that even the local residents don’t realise about their town, so he wants people to experience the local atmosphere and the extraordinary history that only a port town can offer. He will also teach you about the spectacular spots known only to the locals, such as the setting sun that creates a path of light reflected in the sea at Ōhato, or the dusk sky known as “Tomonoura Blue”. Be sure to visit the Tomonoura Museum of History and Folklore in Fukuyama City and see the special exhibits that Mr Tsūdō so carefully prepares.
