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.

Another massive day, but the weather has turned and the heavens have opened up wide! Train trip to Arashiyama where we experienced Batik making. After chosing the design and the article we wanted to work on, we set about with paint brushes and hot wax to trace and paint! The finished products are amazing! The little old lady, who we dubbed Elsie, helped me draw cherry blossom, my name and the date in Japanese. They have been in this business for over 50 years, ...
... 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 ...
... 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 ...
Tomorrow I embark on the Shimanami Kaido. That means this is my last evening on Shikoku before I steer my steps towards Honshu. The walk should take 3 days. I'm charging the battery in my hotel room watching bad J-TV. Drinking green tea and looking at what to do in Korea when I get there in less than a week. Will be fun to see old friends in Seoul. Last time I was there (in 2007) I ended up seeing nothing but that city as I had too much fun ...
We have rented bikes straight from the hotel, took a ferry across and started our cycling day around 10 am. We have met a nice Japanese tourist from Osaka on the ferry and decided to cycle together.
The Shimanami Kaido-sea road links the main islands through series of bridges and small islands. At he beginning we wanted to do the whole 70km cycle route in a day with a ferry back but after a while we have taken more leisure approach and were enjoying the views across ...
