Shimanami Kaido Cycling Without Baggage Shimanami Kaido Cycling Without Baggage

What is “Cycling Without Baggage”?

With the idea of allowing people to enjoy cycling with greater convenience, we have started a service offering same day delivery of baggage from hotel locations at your cycling start point to those at your destination. This service can be used even for just a single item, ranging from large baggage such as suitcases to small hand-carried goods such as souvenirs.

Many cyclists wish to take in views of beautiful ocean or island scenery while cycling, and among them, “Shimanami Kaido Cycling” on a route connecting Honshu and Shikoku is gaining popularity.

This is an 80-kilometer long bicycle road that crosses the Seto Inland Sea, with 6 bridges connecting Onomichi City in Hiroshima Prefecture and Imabari City in Ehime Prefecture. The Shimanami Kaido is often regarded as a cycling mecca, and many cyclists have a dream of riding down this road free of cumbersome baggage, as though they were soaring through the air. Our “Shimanami Kaido Cycling Without Baggage” service has turned this dream into reality.
