If you’re after an easier cycling route, why not head to Ikuchijima, an artistic island along the Shimanami Kaido. Begin with a 40-minute ferry ride from Onomichi Station to Setoda Port on Ikuchijima Island where you can rent a bike and begin cycling.
Ikuchijima is renowned for its lemon production, as well as being dotted with outdoor sculptures that include giant lemons! Don’t miss the beautifully decorated Kosanji Temple or shopping for local specialties in the Shiomachi Shotengai (Shopping District), then experience the Californian vibes of Setoda Sunset Beach.
