Shimanami Kaido Cycling

Girl's Cycling Trip

Cycling across islands while enjoying the beautiful sea and the flesh sea breeze
On your bike seat, get ready to encounter amaizing scenery you will never experience in a car seat.

I decided to take this cycling trip on my days off. I wanted to cycle around the islands while enjoying the scenery, as well as eating delicious local food. Although I had roughly researched the area beforehand, I basically cycled around leisurely wherever I felt like. I kept my own pace, cycling by myself, together with my friend, taking a break, eating as I felt like it and dropping by at any intriguing shops I spotted. My carefree adventure to the Shimanami Kaido begins here.
