Downtime on peaceful island
Aug 2015 • Friends
Great island to get some perspective on a less city focused Japan. We hired a bike and circumnavigated the island in about 3 hours, but that included stops and it's a flat route. Sat and had a beer on sunset beach. Definitely off the beaten track for westerners and would highly recommend.

Remote island popular with cyclists

The inland sea islands are very picturesque with stunning views of nature. It's a good escape from crowded cities and trains. Most tourists go to Miyajima near Hiroshima, and we visited there on a previous trip. For this trip, we wanted something with fewer tourists and outdoor activities. We used our rail pass from Tokyo to Onomichi where we walked from the train station to the ferry (about 15 minutes walk). The ferry ride was charming in the fog to the misty island. The ferry does not carry cars as Washington State ferries do. We were definitely the only tourists on the ferry. The inland sea islands are very popular with cyclists, and we had planned to rent bicycles. However, we were inundated with heavy rains. After we got off the ferry, we found ourselves in a quiet village with every shop selling oranges. Citrus is a major crop here. Also, fresh seafood is readily available. We stopped at a shop where we could not communicate with the shop owner, but she called our inn. When the rains let up, we walked around the charming village and saw an enormous series of temples. We missed the art museum. We just need to go back when the weather is better!
