This business hotel was great. My first choice for hotels in this town was full but turned out I was more than happy with this place. Just a 2 minute walk from the station. Very reasonably priced at about 5500yen. Huge, bright lobby, not much English spoken but very friendly front desk staff. They had my bag pre-delivered to my next destinatin/hotel as my plan was to cycle the 77km route: Shimanami Kaido to Imabari, Shikoku the next day. There were other cyclists there at the same time with bikes in bags so this hotel is very used to dealing with cyclists heading out to the Shimanami Kaido. The starting point for this route is 3 min. walk down the hill to the waterfront ferry. Rooms clean. There is a local supermarket about 5 min. walk away where I picked up delicious, cheap take out food for dinner.

... kimonos before that for who knows how long! Best morning! Next stop, a Japanese movie studio. Samourai greeted us in full gear, posing for shots with us. Theatre performers did their cool stuff on stage, while I had a photo taken dressed at a Geisha. My fellow travellers all agree I should maintain the blonde thing....not fans of me as a brunette! As the rain came down we headed to the staton to catch the "Romantic Train" which meandered through the lush ...
Took the early morning train from Hiroshima to Onomichi to start my 70km cycling trip to Imbari. Was looking forward to the trip. This trip reminds me of the cycling through Vancouver islands. Island hopping. It is very easy to go from one place to the next. All routes are well ...
... the path. But boi did I Wong it! Yup, I winged it good. And it all turn out great. Sore feet!! Very sad are they.. no happy with me at all.. But it was well worth it. Day 1 I had planned to leave my hotel in Imabari a tad earlier than I did but that bed was just so damn cosy after a week on the ground or on Japanese futons which is just a tiny bit softer than the actual floor you lie on. My body is well used to it now after 5 weeks but when I lied down in that bed - it ...
... the people of Imabari never seen a ridiculous western tantrum before - well then they have now.. I probably made up a few hundred new swear words mixing English/Swedish/Polish/and even some Japanese.. Ha! Map Schmap! Absolutely useless.. But the hotel totally made up for putting out the wrong road and route numbers on the map. However it was another Shikoku test me thinks. Life likes to put these little trials at my feet and if I pass then ...
... br> On the way to Ikuchijima we have met a Dutch tourist Ming with who we travelled along through the day, so there were four of us cycling along. The route is nicely signed with English names and blue mark on the rode, hoverer we have managed to be lost on the way- lucky enough we had a Japanese guy with us, so he asked locals for the direction.
We have stooped few times; to get some food, pick some oranges from the orange trees nearby and to take some pictures. ...
