What is Shimanami Kaido Cycling Course?
The Shimanami Kaido Cycling Course is a cycling course that crosses the sea on the western side of Japan, connecting Hiroshima and Ehime Prefectures.
Onomichi City in Hiroshima Prefecture and Imabari City in Ehime Prefecture are connected by a highway connecting seven islands.
This highway is about 75 km.
Along this highway there is a cycling road where people can enjoy cycling.

Shimanami Kaido is the first cycling course approved by the country in Japan in the fall of 2019.
In order to be recognized as a certified cycling road in Japan, there are some strict requirements.
The Shimanami Kaido Cycling Course is a cycling course that overcomes all of these tough challenges and can be run with peace of mind.
The wonderful point of the Shimanami Kaido Cycling Course
Rental bicycle is very convenient
There are 13 bicycle rental terminals in the Shimanami Kaido cycling course.
These rental bicycles can be rented at any of the 13 bicycle rental terminals and can be returned anywhere.
Therefore, after visiting the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture, we moved from Hiroshima City to nearby Onomichi City, rented a bicycle in Onomichi, started, and returned the bicycle to Imabari City on the Ehime Prefecture side. You can also enter Dogo Onsen, famous in Ehime Prefecture, and then travel by plane.
Moreover, this rental bicycle is very cheap and can be rented for only 1000 yen. (*)
（※）If you do not return at the rented bicycle rental terminal, but return it at another location, you will need 1000 yen separately.
Beautiful view of the Seto Inland Sea from the seven bridges
The Shimanami Kaido Bridge is built on the sea with many islands called the Seto Inland Sea.
The Seto Inland Sea is also called the “Japanese Aegean Sea” and has a very beautiful landscape.
From the Shimanami Kaido cycling course, you can enjoy various beautiful scenery of the Seto Inland Sea.
