NHK – Cycle Around Japan: Shimanami Life on the Islands (2018)

NHK Cycle Around Japan Shimanami Life on the Islands

Our journey takes us to Shimanami in the Seto Inland Sea, an area dense with islands. In 1999, the Shimanami Kaido was opened, consisting of 70 kilometers of highways and bridges linking the islands. Until then ferries had been the main means of transportation. Today, cyclists from all over the world have discovered the delights of the area. Here one can experience the slow but satisfying way of living and cultural highlights such as growing mikan oranges and drying fish. Join us on a 4-day ride, island-hopping through the Seto Inland Sea.
