Pedal through enchanted forests and join a pilgrimage to Japan’s mountain temples on this small-group e-bike tour across the islands of the Seto Inland Sea. Weave through verdant valleys and across panoramic bridges along the famed Shimanami Kaido cycling route, then follow the curve of dramatic cliffs along the Pacific Coast, with every climb made easy thanks to your convenient e-bike. Savour flavourful local dining experiences, including a guided sake tasting, learn the intricate art of Washi papermaking and zip across the countryside on a whisper-soft bullet train. Marvel at two beautiful sites on the historic Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage, including the painterly beauty of Iwamoto Temple’s tiled ceiling. With cherry blossom and autumn foliage departures, Japan’s forest islands are a colourful canvas for spectacular cycling.

Itinerary & map
What you'll see
Setoda town, Onomichi

Konnichiwa, and welcome to Japan! Your tour begins at 10am when you meet your fellow cyclists at Green Hill Hotel Onomichi – easily reached by bullet train from Osaka or Kyoto. After collecting your electronic bike, or ‘e-bike’, you’ll hop aboard the ferry for a short journey across the water. Disembark at Mukaishima Island for the start of your spectacular Shimanami Kaido cycling voyage.

Your day is spent weaving through secluded bamboo forests on your way to the dazzling coast. With the use of your e-bike, riding is comfortable and easy, even on uphill climbs. Later, arrive in Setoda, famed for its historic salt industry and coveted lemon harvest. Check in at your ryokan stay – a traditional inn and bathhouse where you can soak in the region’s serene hot springs. Tonight, don your ‘yukata’ gown and sit down to a warming dinner at a local eatery.
