Cycling 70km Across 6 Islands In Japan | Shimanami Kaido Travel Guide

Shimanami Kaido is one of Japan's most famous cycling routes connecting the main island Honshu with Shikoku.

Ever since I heard about this bikeway a few months ago, I knew I had to travel there some day to experience it for myself!!

So, I packed up my bags, bought a Shinkansen ticket and took a spontaneous trip down to Onomichi, Hiroshima.

Shimanami Kaido Bikeway runs between Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture and Imabari in Ehime Prefecture, hopping across 6 islands of the Seto Inland Sea.

You can start your journey from either the Hiroshima side or the Ehime side. I started from the Hiroshima side because the views get better and better as you go along towards Ehime.

So, hope you enjoy the new adventure with me and let me know in the comments something you have always wanted to do!! And then MAKE time for it and actually go do it! :D

Cycle the Shimanami Kaido

Shikoku is waiting for you! The Shimanami Kaido runs from Onomichi (near Hiroshima) to Imabari (in Ehime). Some people do this 70km journey in one day, but we encourage guests to explore this area slowly, to go swimming, to climb mountains, to really get a feeling for the pace of life of this area. We provide detailed maps with cultural and historical information, advice on where to go and what to eat, and make hotel arrangements. We can arrange guides if needed. We also provide luggage transfer, breakfast and dinner at the hotels, bike rental, and (if needed) bike support and phone rental. We work with small local hotels - an inn owned by a fisherman who serves what he catches and a more traditional ryokan with only four rooms. We believe our 2 night/3 day tour offers travellers the chance to experience the best this area has to offer!

For more details of this tour, please visit our website:


Come to Shikoku! The island few make it to, but those who do never forget!

100km Ride to sfiDARE Crit Japan + 138 Tower Park | CYCLING JAPAN VLOG

Thuong and Cruise ride 100km from Nagoya to sfiDare Crit in Gifu, Japan. This race is the first and only official fixed gear crit in Japan.

Race info can be found here:



We had a great time watching the race and cheering on friends. Afterwords, we took the long way home along the Kiso river cycling path (木曽川サイクリングロード) and passed 138 Tower Park, which has a pretty awesome tower.

I ended up getting pretty sunburned, but it was still a pretty awesome day to be out on a bike in Japan.

Cycling the Shimanami Kaido Cycling Route near Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan

The Shimanami Kaido Cycle Route links the main islands of Honshu and Shikoku in Japan through a series of bridges and islands in the Seto Inland Sea.

The 70km cycle trail takes you between islands across a series of impressive bridges with special cycle lanes and for added fun there's a network of ferries to help you get back. We rented bikes in Onomichi and set off to explore some of the trail which is a great day out for those who enjoy cycling.

Forced My Wife To Cycle Up Japan's Highest Mountain Road 😂 - Mt. Norikura

Today my wife Thuong and I will be cycling up Japan's highest mountain road, Mt. Norikura, which peaks at over 8,900 feet.

My wife is still very much a beginner cyclist and has never done a big hill climb ride before, but she was still up to the challenge of climbing up Japan's highest road. (I may of also not told her many of the details before starting the ride..)

All in all, it was a beautiful day for cycling in Japan. We had some really good weather, sunny skies, and Thuong really pushed herself beyond her comfort zone to make it up to the top. Big props to her!

Hopefully we'll be able to make it back again one day and I'll make sure that she does a bit more training before we do.

The Shimanami Kaido: The best bicycle route in Japan しまなみ海道

Subscribe to my channel here. Thank you so much for a thumb-up!


Behind the scenes:
The Shimanami Kaido is 70-kilometer-long bicycle route that stretches from the city of Onomichi on the main island of Honshu to Imabari on Shikoku. It crosses several bridges and islands, offering a different side of Japan. All the bridges have designated bicycle lanes. In my opinion, this is the best bicycle route in Japan. We did this travel adventure in May 2018 within two days, spending the night in a ryokan on Omishima Island.

Technical infos:
I fixed a DJI Osmo+ (the DJI Osmo Pocket didn’t exist at the time) and a Crystal Sky display on the front of my bicycle. Additionally I used a DJI Mavic Pro drone for the aerial shots.
