I stayed at the fabulous and grand new inn for cyclists called Wakka. The next day it was raining so I too this taxi service back to catch a ferry out of Setoda. Great service when you need a lift.

Great service! Used them to help us get to Imabari to collect bikes for the ride back to Onomichi. Easy contact (in English which helped a non Japanese speaker like me) and punctual and friendly. Would highly recommend!

I recently had a tire blow out on my Shimanami bike trip. There were no shops that stocked road bike tires and I found myself stuck in the middle of Omishima Island. Luckily, I came across WAKKA on Facebook and sent them a distress call, asking that they give me a ride to Sakari Port, from where I could get the ferry back to Tadanoumi where I could bag my bike and ride the bus back to Hiroshima. WAKKA replied to my first message, in perfect English, within a few minutes and we arranged a pick up point.

I was lucky that they were testing a new roadside repair service (that I hear has now been officially launched) and fixed by tire free of charge before putting it on the roof of their vehicle. After I got into the back seat of the clean and comfortable car I was handed an ice cold face towel and a cold citrus drink to enjoy on the way to the port - much appreciated on a hot day.

Thanks to WAKKA, what could have been a really tiresome retreat from the Shimanami Kaido turned into a great day. Plus, as my biking was cut short, I was able to sample some of the beers at Omishima Brewery without fear of getting arrested :)

We are lucky for having a good customer like you. We hope you will enjoy your cycling in Shimanami again!
