Umashima on the Shimanami Kaido

The first little island on the Ehime side

Umashima is the first little island on the Shimanami Kaido. It was once used for breeding war horses, but they didn't thrive on the steep slopes. Today it's a quiet place with little beaches and abundant bird life. Riding across the bridge to Umashima is an undemanding way to get a little taste of the Shimanami Kaido if you don't have time for anything longer. There are no shops or restaurants, so take your own fodder.
