Take the ferry from Onomichi to Mukaishima

If you just want a taste of the Shimanami Kaido, you can embark on the cycling course that takes you from Onomichi to the neighboring island of Mukaishima.

This scenic journey begins with a short ferry ride (departures every 5-10 minutes) and once you arrive on Mukaishima, it’s around 28 kilometers to cycle the entire island.

Explore the former downtown area of Kankichi and stop in at Goto Fountain, a retro drinks factory that’s renowned for its Margo Cider. Continue cycling to the picturesque Tachibana Shokudo resort for lunch or grab a “screw bread” from the famous Sumita bakery.
