A Very Popular Cycling Route, Suited for Any Level of Cyclists
Awaji Island located in the Seto Inland Sea is known for its pleasant weather: a little rain, hot but less humid summer, no snow in winter and mild spring and autumn. An average temperature is 15 degrees Centigrade. Its size is same as a total of 23 wards of Tokyo, yet its population is one hundredth of Tokyo.
The west coast of Awaji Island has many spots selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Sunsets, perfect spots for your photo opportunity!
The entire cycling route is about 150 km. If you go at 20 km/h, it should technically take just 7.5 hours. However, the southern mountainous area requires physical strength and time. It is said to take about 10 hours including rest and photo taking time for a middle-level cyclist. If you are at a beginner’s level, its is recommended to go about a half way, sleep over and then complete the latter half.
Boro Seikaiha, a Recommended Hotel for Cyclists
The holistic wellness hotel is located near the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world! If you are starting from the southwest side of the island, Boro Seikaiha is located at the half way. If you are starting from the northern tip of the island, it will be right at your goal.
A natural radon hot spring, healthy menus centered around fermented food and the beautiful view of the bridge that the hotel offers will certainly heal your body after long hours of cycling and gives you energy for next day!
