Recently, Mom and Rumi took a trip to the reaches of Japan. We promised her a whirlwind tour of health. Since Japan makes everything convenient + Rumi’s incredible planning skills + incredible parents, everything was intensely awesome.
We started by flying all the way down to Matsuyama, and busing it to Imabari. This is in the Ehime prefecture. We wanted to do the Shimanami Kaido 60 km bike trip. This includes the awesome scenery while riding over extremely long bridges + many small islands where each one specializes in some kind of food. Very japanese.
Eat the oranges there, and get as many as you can. They’re cheap and delicious, and dekopon ice cream is as good as it sounds. Dekopon.
Let me note that the deposit on the bikes only apply if you bring them back to the original spot. Keep that in mind if you want to get your 1000 Yen back. Also each bridge has a small toll, like 200 to 50 Yen depending on the bridge. If you want to go then just buy the tickets at the beginning…
