  The industrial-chic inn is part of Onomichi U2, a former warehouse converted by a local entrepreneur to house the hotel, as well as a seafood restaurant, a bar overlooking the harbor, a cafe with a “cycle-up” takeout window, a bakery, a Giant Bicycle store and a gift shop selling locally made clothing, food products and housewares. The complex overlooks the shipping channel and surrounding islands linked by bridges with bike lanes that comprise the 37-mile Shimanami Kaido cycle path. Rooms from 17,000 yen ($145 at 117 yen to the dollar)
