March 15-17 Island Hopping Cycling on Shimanami Kaido

2018.10.18

Introduction

The Shimanami Kaido in Japan is the 60 kilometer expressway that links the main island of Honshu with the island of Shikoku, Imabari city via a series of bridges connecting half a dozen islands in-between. This express way is also known for one of the best cycling routes!

Though an expressway, each of the bridges can be used by cyclists and pedestrians, and each island has a well-marked cycle path to the next bridge, creating a cycle route of 80 kilometers that is the best cycle route in Japan and certainly among the most impressive bike routes in the world.
