Onomichi City is a 90-minute drive east of Hiroshima. It’s also ac­ces­si­ble by trains run­ning be­tween Osaka and Hiroshima. The Shi­manami Kaido cy­cling trail con­nects Onomichi on Hon­shu with Shikoku Is­land. There are two other driv­able routes to Shikoku but only this one is ac­ces­si­ble to cy­clists. Driv­ing the Nishi-Seto Ex­press­way, also known as Seto-uchi Shi­manami Kaido (or “high­way above the sea”), one way in a stan­dard car costs $56 in cash tolls. The cy­cling route is fee-free un­til March 31, 2018. More: go-shi­manami.jp/global/english; onomichi-u2.com. • jnto.org.au
