Cycling in Teshima
Island Hopping in Japan's Mediterranean
The bike ride from Ieura Port to remote south coast takes less than an hour on an electric bicycle. Once you leave the township, there is only one road that snakes through the tree studded hills. Soon the trees fall away and a beautiful vista opens up. You can see kites circling over the wind currents on one side, while keeping an eye for the odd deserted temple on the other side. The roadside strawberry stalls and art installations will conspire to slow you down, and unlike the minibuses that circle the island, you can stop and take it all in, as many times as you like.
