Setting out

Senkoji Temple

The early morning view from Senkoji Temple (千光寺) in Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture.

Onomichi  (尾道) is the starting point of the Shimanami Kaido (しまなみ海道), a road route from Honshu to Shikoku via several small islands that is popular with cyclists. A full post about my two-day adventure on the Shimanami-kaido will follow shortly.
