Shimanami Kaido – Omishima

After breakfast, we rented bikes at the hotel and made our way across the Tatara Bridge (多々羅大橋) to Omishima island (大三島). We headed to Oyamazumi Shrime (大山祇神社) on the other end of the island and then looped around southern coast. The scenery was spectacular but our butts sore – not the best of seats on the rental bikes. Next time, we need to plan better and rent good bikes at Onomichi (尾道市) – this trip was impromptu.

The local residents hand out tangerines that grow in the area, they’re very sweet and absolutely delicious.
