  • Visited by ferry from Naoshima. It enjoyed a 10-day bike move very small island, so. In addition, facilities, there are many slopes in the mountains for the electric bike recommended. Island Naoshima like flock of tourists so I thought not and one to leisurely island hopping in a couple best. Just good to rest, weary and chic cafes and restaurants. Since even small islands and tourist destinations, making appointments, can be moved efficiently to create plans in advance.

  • The island's advice goes in the morning, because the exhibition area and the art museum about 5-6 will be closed, it is possible to arrange a full day of travel, very leisurely, planning a good island, advice to rent a bicycle, but please measure the strength of the majority of the flat road. If the way of walking and bus is not very well controlled. Be sure to go to the Rich Island Museum, it's fun, and there's no enemy sea side!
