A Recent Review of this tour

I 100% would recommend you go with Yuji if you want to take a biking oriented tour around the bridge that connects Onomichi to Shikoku. Yuji gave us experiences that we could not have had on our own. For example, he took us to a biking shrine where we got to interact with the head guy, took us to the best lunch, showed us the most incredible viewpoints, and even took us to a really neat enzyme farm. He also uses a van and sets up the bikes for you. He adapts to whatever experience you want.
