Welcome to CYCLING PARADISE!
A spectacular 60km road network, connecting Japan’s main island of Honshu with Shikoku (nation’s 4th largest island), and spans 6 smaller islands, featuring bike and pedestrian lanes for its entire length.
Hiroshima’s SHIMANAMI KAIDO might be an expressway, but it’s also an ultimate cycle adventure that everybody should experience!
Don’t worry if you didn’t bring your bike along with you, cause there are actual 14 cycle rental terminals along the way where you can rent and drop off the bicycle. You can go at your own pace, spend a night at a campsite or just hand the bike at the nearest rental terminal and get on a bus. Whichever way you travel, the views that you’ll be about to see are fascinating, especially the views of the Seto Inland Sea National Park.
On the way you can drop by some of the islands to enjoy some serious freshness, such as delicious citrus fruits grown in the mild climate or savory seafood caught in the Inland Sea.
It’s peace&quiet enriched with breathtaking views that mother Nature has given us to enjoy. Along the way the fresh air will be your perfect partner gather with the harmony of the peaceful sea.
Beside the beauties that you’ll be experiencing, cycling will give you the freedom to stop for a photo halfway across the bridge or to investigate some shrines, lighthouses and natural wonders that most automobile travelers just pass by.
Experience this cycling wonder throughout these photos, but don’t let yourself stuck on this point! Let this travel adventure take a place in your life agenda. You’ll have the time of your life for sure!
