・For lunch, savor the delicious 「Iwakuni Sushi」! The "Oshi-sushi" (a unique form of sushi) is a long-beloved cuisine. Among the locals, it is also called "Tonosama-sushi"; this is said to be because Yoshikawa Hiroie (the first lord of the Iwakuni domain), who was said to eat this before a battle as a preservation food somehow became popular among the townsfolk. It is made by putting numerous layers of ingredients such as lotus roots, shiitake mushrooms, broiled eggs on top of sushi rice in a wooden frame, this is then cut into individual portions. With the appearance looking similar to the colorful chirashi-sushi (rice mixed with various ingredients), this said to be a must bring meal during meet-ups among the locals.

Exploration (Kintai Bridge, Ropeway, Iwakuni Castle, etc.)

・It is one of Japan's 3 most famous bridges, and THE wooden bridge representing Japan. In 1673 (during the Enpo era), Kikkawa Hiroyoshi the 3rd lord of Iwakuni made the wooden base to what will become the bridge now. The 5 arches forming this set of bridges do not use any nails, relying only on fitting techniques such as joints and fittings. Fitting with the name "錦 (kin)" you can enjoy beautifully colorful sights of the 4 seasons from the bridge. ・The ropeway located on the mountain peak includes a free entry to Iwakuni Castle when riding! From Iwakuni Castle keep, you can observe sights such as the castle town and Kintai Bridge, when the weather is nice you can even view the Islands dotted as far as in the Seto Inland sea.
