Japan's Inland Sea Paradise | Shimanami Kaido

  • Опубликовано: 16 фев 2019
  • Japan's Seto Inland Sea is the most beautiful place in the country. And the Shimanami Kaido cycle route across the chain of islands that span it, is the best way to experience it. Even if it's one brutal undertaking on par with Mount Fuji.

    Honestly, I'd spent the first 1,000km journey across Japan looking forward to this day, and it didn't disappoint - even if it nearly finished me off! Thank you to Sharla for joining the adventure; may your legs rest in peace. IF you guys are coming to Japan on holiday, for the love of god set aside a day or two to cycle the Shimanami Kaido though. YOU WON'T REGRET IT. (But your thighs will).

      Ever since your first video where you put this route in one your videos it's been on top of my bucketlist. Pretty much my only thing as of now but definitely my number one! (I also enjoy cycling so it's kind of a no brainer)

      Hey Chris, that day's cycle looks really pretty - was this really only filmed a few days ago? How warm is it down there? I'm up in Aomori entrenched in snow, but since hirodai's spring break has started I want to go south and enjoy some warmth! I'm getting a bit sick of snow and -7deg most days. I am really jealous of you quite frankly. Any tips? Can I go in the other direction? Can I hire a bike on one end and leave it at the other? Thanks :)

      My family put me in charge of planning our vacation to Japan this summer. Happened to find out about the Shimanami Kaido just hours before you uploaded, and this video has definitely strengthened my conviction to make it a part of our itinerary.
      Beautiful drone shots btw, especially the one capturing the sunset was absolutely majestic. Not gonna lie I was kinda bummed out when the time between uploads starting getting longer and longer shortly after the start of the journey, but if this is the quality of footage and production we get in exchange, it's absolutely worth it.

      +blissblissbliss That is true, the seatposts should be higher. That being said, when we did the cycle the seatpost was way to low for me on the bikes you can rent there (I am 191 cm), it really does a number on your thighs.

    I did this route because I saw the video of your first time doing! Unfortunately we went all the way to the end, because we started too late in the day :-( and we need to return our rental bikes, so we got to the Ikuchijima and run to get the last ferry back to Onomich! Would love to do it again

    Sharla is a person worthy of so much respect. You can tell she cares about everyone, every last one, so deeply. You both bring out the best in each other. Though pressures can seem overbearing, the most precious gems couldn’t form with out patience, time, and pressure! When people say ignore naysayers, most don’t tell you that sometimes you’ll be your own naysayer and have to overcome. Thank you Chris for the inspiration and setting a great example in the world, I’ve forgotten how much I miss biking! 😉

    Absolutely FASCINATING tour by bike. So very impressed you did it. A bit younger and I would have loved to have done the same.
    BUT NOW For something completely different. You once made a comment about being able to listen to Japanese music as another good reason to learn Japanese, then played a bit of that godawful ponpon rubbish.
    BUT do you go to concerts. WHAT kind of music in Japan do you listen to? Jpop? Jrock? I have found the new wave of Jrock led by the ladies such as Band Maid, LOVEBITES, Mary's Blood, Aldious Fate Gear, Bridear et al are such a relief from the crap we have in the West with regards to actual music with tunes in them.
    So what do you like and do you attend shows.

    Just a thought:
    You cannot say Seto inland Sea is 'the most beautiful place in the country', since there are many other beautiful places in Japan.
    If you say 'Seto inland Sea is one of the most beautiful places in the country', that makes more sense.

    Your wheels are designed to grip into dirt which is a much different type of traction than the smaller less pronounced cycling tires and your frames are heavier than cycling frames those are the reasons for your difficulty uphill you're using mountain bikes

    I did this cycle 2 years ago on my 1st trip to Japan, and you're actually the reason I got to do it - you mentioned it in one of your early videos that I saw while doing research for the trip. I even got stopped by a random person while cycling there, who waved me down just so he could give me an orange.
    Thanks, I got to see something awesome because of you.
