Shimanami Kaido

Shimanami Kaido

Shimanami Kaido is a toll road that passes through 6 small islands. It starts from the main island of Honshu and connects to the Shikoku region.

Shimanami Kaido is a toll road that connects the main island of Honshu to the Shikoku Region. It passes through six small islands located in the Seto Inland Sea. The toll road is 60 kilometers long and is also known as the Nishiseto Expressway. Even though there are two other land roads that connect the two regions, however it is the only one where you can travel by foot and bicycle. The entrance to the path is located at Onomichi City in Honshu and ends at Imbari City in Shikoku. The highlight of travel this road is the beautiful scenery that you pass by or stop at one of the observatories to soak in the sights.

In 1999, the Shimanami Kaido first opened for use and was made using modern bridge architecture. There are a few attractions that you can enjoy while traversing the route. On Ikuchijima Island there is a museum called Hirayama Museum, which is dedicated to the famous painter Hirayama Ikuo. There is also the Kosanji temple that a rich businessman built for his mother. The observatory on Oshima Island is one of the best places to see all the bridges especially when the sun is setting.
