SHIMAP:Shimanami Kaido Tourist Information

The Nishiseto Expressway, commonly known as the Setouchi Shimanami Kaido Expressway, links Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, with Imabari, Ehime Prefecture. It's a 60 kilometer-long highway exclusively for automobiles that links the islands of the Seto Inland Sea with nine individual bridges.

Each bridge consists of a road way and a pedestrian walkway. That enables people to enjoy the sea breeze as they walk or cycle across the bridge.

The area along the Shimanami Kaido linked by bridges is blessed by the temperate climate of the Seto Inland Sea. There is much to delight visitors, including the loveliness of nature on the islands, sites of history and culture, and a variety of activities.
