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.

... than to come home for his funeral- wherever in the world we were though we would hold our own special service to honour Gran for all he was. This turned out to be Day 2 of our planned bike ride of the Shimano Kaido, a 70km bike ride across the Seto Inland Sea of Japan. For those of you who know me, my **** is not designed to sit on a bike, so it was a little ironic that the universe had me bike riding on this day. I even contemplated running it on my dodgy Achilles ...
... spectacular views of the hillside, river and huge boulders below...think Puffing Billy on steroids! An awesome experience! As dusk fell we headed to a quaint riverside town to witness cormorant fishing. Birds on leashes, diving for fish from ancient looking boats. The fishermen keep the large fish while the birds get the rest. Sake on the banks of the river, in the rain, with paper lanterns swaying in the breeze completed our day. This was the longest. Home after ...
... bike paths are clear. I passed through 8 Islands and 7 bridges. Each bridge is designed very unique and different from the other one. I landed at the Sunrise Itoyama bicycle terminal for the night for 4200¥ per night. The bath is quite an experience in the form of the Japanese ...
... But why choose gracious when you can choose fun. When a family of 6 arrived to the beach a little bit later they sure must have been wondering what the heck was going on with that weirdo.. Hundreds of dips later and with legs that took a more and more boiled lobster coloure by the minute I called it a day. I had that last stretch of 12km to take care of before setting foot in Onomichi. I followed route 317 - again!! - and moved across the island confident like a ...
... at the hostel. This time I'm starting in the other end with a railpass so I'm sure I get to see a lot more this time around. I had a good few last days on Shikoku tho. Very relaxed in Matsuyama's onsen neighbourhood Dogo. Anyone who is a Studio Ghibli fan knows that this bath house stood as model for the one in Spirited Away. It's a gorgeous building and apparently the oldest onsen in Japan.. But when it comes to the bath itself well.. ...
