Onomichi (尾道市 Onomichi-shi), also known as Onomichi Jingaicho[a] (尾道仁涯町, Onomichi Jingaichō), is a location introduced to the Yakuza series in Yakuza 6 as the game's main setting. It is based on the real-life district of Shingai located in the downtown area of the Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.

History[]

Onomichi was a key location for Naval shipbuilding in Japan during the second world war. After the atomic bomb was dropped on nearby Hiroshima, Onomichi fell into decline, leading to a large organized crime presence in the city.

Yakuza 6[]

Kiryu visits Onomichi after finding out that Haruka had taken a photo of herself here before the hit-and-run accident that had caused her to fall into a comatose state. It is home to the Yomei Alliance and the Iwami shipbuilding company, whose president and founder is centenarian Heizo Iwami, later run by his son Tsuneo.

Kiryu acts as the town's mascot Ono Michio, as well as helping revitalize the local Setouchi Warriors baseball team.
