A few days of cycling on Shikoku

After finishing our three weeks in the Zen Temple, I’m now doing a three-day cycle tour on Shikoku, my favorite Japanese island to ride. Day one was a short ride from the Yamatahama ferry to Uchiko, a ride I’ve done before.

We went to a paper making factory in Uchiko. This is hard, repetitive work.
 
Day two was also relatively short (only 40 miles) but was a monster climbing day on a touring bike (just under 6000 feet). The roads were (mostly) very very good and it ended up being a really great ride.
 
This is my first springtime cycling trip in Japan; usually I ride in the fall when the rice is being harvested, now it’s being planted.
 
 
This area has lots of covered bridges
 
 

And of course, some great cycling roads
 

I spent the night in Yusuhara, a small town in the mountains. This is my hotel…
And the Yusuhara municipal building
