Model Course

Day1 Matsuyama → Dogo

On this Blue Island Shikoku Tour, you will be riding all the way on the Shimanami Kaido, a coast ride where you will be able to fell the marvellous Blue Island at its best. In Shimanami you will be eating the rich seafood BBQ of Setouchi and enjoying Mount Kiro's wonderful view. At the end of the day you will then enjoy the hot spring waters of Dogo Onsen, recognized as one of the most ancient hot spring in Japan. Our recommendation is also to take a pleasant walk around the area.

Day2 Dogo → Katsurahama

On this day you will be riding through Shikoku region's mountains famous for being a great part of its popular pilgrimage route. After a visit to the Iwayaji Temple, you will ride all the way to the Pacific Ocean coast. Here you will feel the grandeur of the Pacific Ocean, totally different from the Setouchi Inland Sea and you will enjoy the very same views which inspired Takeichi Hanpeita and Ryoma Sakamoto, who guided the country during the Meiji Restoration. At the end of this second day you will be resting your body and your motorcycle "at Ryoma's knees" in Katsurahama.

Day3 Katsurahama → Matsuyama

On the last day, you will enjoy another wonderful ride through the mountains of Shikoku region departing from the Pacific Ocean. You will follow the Nyodo River all the way to the North, enjoying the astonishing up and downs in the mountains. Then, you will ride through the UFO line while enjoying the view of the highest peak in western Japan, the Mount Ishizuchi, returning to Matsuyama, our starting point. Remember, before your return go and take a look at the Tobe ware porcelain art. Then enjoy plenty to the end the mountain winding.
