Ashizuri Loop

This approximately 30km loop takes you around the whole of the Ashizuri Peninsular with amazing Pacific Ocean views all the way. Tackle it counter-clockwise to be closer to the sea views along the way, or clockwise if you aim to catch one of the area’s famous sunsets.

Oki Beach Pilgrim Route

The Shikoku Pilgrimage route between the Iburi turn off and Oki Beach takes you through tunnels of trees along a twisting mountain road with some beautiful views of Oki Beach through the forest canopy. A route made for E-bikes!

Cape Ashizuri Pacific Coast Ride

Although only 10km in length, there is so much to see along this route. If you only have a few hours to explore Ashizuri, this is the one!

You should still allow for a good amount of time, however, as you will be spending as long off the bike taking photos as you will on it.

Tatsukushi Area

Tatsukushi is a geological wonderland above the sea and marine paradise below. Walking paths give you easy access to rock features formed over millions of years and pretty Sakurahama Beach where sea turtles come to lay their eggs in summer. Be sure to give yourself time to explore this fascinating area before heading back to your hotel.

Tosashimizu City Center

Tosashimizu has a compact, easy-to-navigate city center and is a good place to stop for a coffee-break, stock up on snacks or grab some local food. Bicycle Shop Mori, the bike store designated to keep Tosashimizu’s E-bikes in good working order is also located here, so if you run into any technical issues, you know where to go!

Perayaki is a simple crepe-like dish, filled with fried fish cake pieces, green onions, dried bonito flakes and topped with a beaten egg and sauce. It’s a great way to experience some local culture. Today, there are several perayaki shops in Tosashimizu, but it all started with Nishimura back in 1957. Push through the hanging curtains and it’s like the interior has changed little since the current owner’s grandmother first set up shop.
