Shimanami Kaidō

The Shimanami Kaidō is a chain of islands across the Seto Inland Sea, joined by a series of bridges which carry an expressway and cycle paths. The route connects Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture on Honshū with Imabari in Ehime Prefecture on Shikoku. From the Hiroshima side, the islands are Mukaishima, Innoshima, Ikuchijima, Ōmishima, Hakatajima, and Ōshima. 

Each of the islands has its own character and attractions. We offer accommodation on all of the islands, with transportation options including rental cycles, support vehicles, and charter buses.
