The Shimanami Kaido Cycling Route spans a total length of about 70 km connecting Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture and Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture with six bridges traversing the many islands dotting the area. It was selected by CNN as one of the best bike routes in the world.
Cyclists can enjoy an exhilarating ride above the ocean while gazing out at it and many islands, which has earned the area the nickname of the "Aegean Sea of the Orient." Bicycle rentals are available at shops along the Shimanami Kaido Cycling Route.
