Island hopping by bike - Japan's Inland Sea

Island hopping by bike - Japan's Inland Sea

For just 500 yen a day (less than £3), we hired a bike each (choice of "sporting" or "comfort"), to ride a cycle path which links Shikoku Island with Honshu Island, via seven islands in Japan's Inland Sea.

The cycle path runs for 70km along fabulous bridges, some as high as 60 metres in the air, looking down onto turbulent tidal waters, tropical beaches, and lots of ships and boats.

We took a detour round one of the islands, cycling along the coast road and stopping for a noodle lunch and cold drinks (sadly no cakes).

it was amazing value and a great way to spend a day simply island-hopping by bike.
