The story of a small inn and historical background
Tosei Han'ei Ro
The time was in the last days of Tokugawa shogunate, the year before new era of Meiji. Feudal retainers of Aki and Choshu gathered and pleased themselves with Sake each and every day at a Japanese Restaurant Inn "Ehan", also known as "Tosei Han'ei Ro".
Restaurant Inn "Fujihan"
The days have passed. Along with the rapid and dynamic change of the times, Ehan had also changed itself into a Restaurant Inn "Fujihan" in the early years of Showa era. And then again changed into a dance-hall, a school for brides, a culture center after World War II.
Japanese Restaurant "Fujihan"
In 58th of Showa (1983), Japanese Restaurant "Fujihan" revived. It had gained popularity and been loved for a long period of time. However, after 36 years of service, the sign was withdrawn regrettably in June 2019.
Then in 2020 (2nd of Reiwa), now the new history has began as a Japanese Restaurant Inn "Onomichi Hansei" right at this place, where we welcomed so many people as "Ehan" and "Fujihan".

The Onomichi story, "A Miniature Garden City from the Middle Ages Built Around the Onomichi Channel", was recognized in 2015 as a Japan Heritage.
The landscape of a coastal town that has been created for generations between the sea and mountains is reminiscent of a miniature garden which makes the view of Onomichi unique.
Between private houses, National Treasures and Important Cultural Properties since middle ages are erected along intricate alleys and slopes, which engender nostalgic atmosphere of Onomichi.
The view of dotted-island-beauty of "Setouchi Shimanami Kaido", the bridges connecting the islands of the Inland Sea is another wonderful scenery unique to this place.
