What you'll do
We are nestled along the famous Shimanami Kaido, a world famous 70km Cycling route. The Kamijima Islands are on a seperate route known as the Yumeshima Kaido, The Dream Islands Cycle Route: A route more stunning for those not wanting to cycle 70km all at once. We will organise a rental bicycle for you (Electric or normal), then we set off and ride a leisurely 20-35km route, slowly riding over 2 suspension bridges, seeing panoramic ocean views and popping into cute local shops over 5-6 hours (including the lunch stops!) The ride will include plenty opportunities to coast and talk together, and of course stops at our regular jaunts and sit to have a bite to eat with coffee. We will finish the ride at golden hour with a picture perfect view of Yuge Harbour, (the main "town" center of Kamijima, and the 2 bridges. All a short walk from 90% of the restaurants and there is Fespa, an ocean view onsen only 10 minutes away! **We can help you plan accommodation, transport, restaurant bookings and other trip advice to get to and from Kamijima! Just let us know your requirements!** Even if you are not an experienced rider, you can enjoy this relaxing bike ride! There are electric assist bikes for those not looking for a big workout. I will cut the harder sections out if there are children on the tour if necessary.
During our frequent stops, I will have some snacks to last us until lunch and dinner.

Bicycle rental with Helmet
This experience will be hosted by me (Matt), and Momo! I am Kiwi. Momo is Japanese. We both moved from New Zealand to Kamijima Islands and are loving it! I am working for the local sushi master, and Momo is working for Kamijima Tourism Association. We know every inch of the islands, and are passionate to show everyone not just the charm of the Japanese island countryside life, not just as a tourist destination, but as a place to live. We will take you by bicycle to our favourite spots that Kamijima has to offer, a route most visitors will rarely find because it's off the main road (and not on any guide books!). Me and Momo are knowledgeable about Japanese Culture (and other Japan things; technology, carpentry, food to list a few) and we will also provide the only English you will find on these islands!

Where you'll be
This route most people never take; the back roads. The islands are not large, but every road is a panoramic view. We will stop at temples, pottery kilns, lookouts and beaches. The best of Kamjima islands is not just the views, it's also our regular brunch spots, coffee and camera shops, and the amazing people behind them. These places and warm people are the exact reason why we love it so much. With us here, on this tour you are already a local!
