“ The Setouchi Islands are not to be missed! ”

This visit was a nice contrast to the busy streets of Tokyo and Kyoto. I'm so glad that I made the decision to stop here as well. The Setouchi Islands are listed as one of the 52 places to go in 2019 by the New York Times. Mayumi had a number of different itineraries to choose from. Biking around the island of Honjima is what I ultimately selected. She planned everything perfectly from catching the ferry to the island, renting bikes and finding a spot for lunch. She even had a nice itinerary and map of the islands waiting for me when I got to the hotel. I saw lots of different birds and amazing scenery on my visit. She knew that I was interested in the Great Seto Bridge - the world's longest two-tiered bridge system - and worked out a train ride on the bridge at the end of the tour. Okayama is really a neat place to visit and I got chance after our tour was over to explore a bit. Lots of great restaurants and things to do. Highly recommend this tour.

Mayumi:

Thank you for writing a very nice review ! You came at a great time, and fortunately the weather was perfect. I am really glad you enjoyed your trip to Okayama and Setouchi islands and the Great Seto Bridge. I feel happy to know that you went back home safely with a lot of memories. As I told you, SETOUCHI TRIENNALE 2019, International Art Festival will be held in these islands soon. If you miss these small islands and friendly birds, please come again. See you again sometime! With a lot of gratitude, Mayumi
