Official FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions have been vetted and answered directly by each listing.


Can you provide services in foreign languages? (If so, please also inform us of the supported languages)


English support available


Are coin lockers available?


At JR Onomichi Station (available all day), or at the Onomichi Port where bike tours begin (7:00am – 7:00pm)


Is there a recommended attire?


Everyday clothes should be fine but a sweat-wicking polyester or synthetic fabric is ideal. The sun is very strong in summer so you may prefer a long sleeve or dry mesh material to protect your skin. If you can, please try to avoid denim as it’s not very flexible. Try to avoid menswear like long shorts/cargo-pants, or ladieswear like skirts or pants that might catch in the chain of the bike. For footwear, sneakers should be fine, but please avoid sandals at all costs.


Can you participate without advanced reservation?


Advanced reservation is required. For bike-only course experiences without a guide you can rent a bike during Golden Week or Obon season without a reservation. For more details please see the Shimanami Japan Website (English).

A Towel, raingear, drink, sunglasses, wet wipes, a bag to place any camera, etc. In the summer, items like a hat, sunblock and bug repellent are recommended.
