TopCyclo Tourisme Shimanami - Guided cycling tour in Shimanami Kaido, Publications, Inspection & Consultation - english page

Take a leisurely island-hopping bicycle tour

The true charm of the Shimanami Kaido lies hidden in the artistic scenery weaving among the many islands and bridges. People can connect with others and with nature while enjoying the Shimanami daily life where time passes gently by.

We suggest you take part in the bicycle trip, "Cyclo Tourisme Shimanami," that allows you to jump into the day-to-day life of Shimanami citizens and learn while enjoying the tour.

Our concept is "Island Time Pottering." On our guided tour, you can comfortably enjoy the secluded private spots and the charming back alleys of the islands. We welcome beginners to participate with us.

Let's go for a Shimanami Kaido treasure hunt together!

What is Cyclo Tourisme Shimanami?

The Shimanami Kaido, the cycling road linking the islands of the Seto Inland mous for its scenic beauty. "Cyclo Tourisme Shimanami" is a private nonprofit organization with a goal of sustained community improvement through the spread of "Cyclo Tourisme," a style of trip in which you can enjoy the Shimanami Kaido with all five senses.

We develop activities in the main fields of Imabari, Ehime and on parts of the Kamijima that encourage people to celebrate "scenery art" by bicycle and to celebrate the local lifestyles present there. We encourage a new sense of values that protect local nature, histories and traditions and promote sustainable local living.
