Yuge Island is situated in the center of the Setonaikai National Park. With numerous islands to the west and the large bay, the Bingonada Sea to the east we are ideally located to enjoy this unique area of Japan.
Yuge Island is conveniently located to the islands that make up the Shimanami Kaido Bridges these are the “only” bridges which cyclists can ride across between Honshu and Shikoku (between the Hiroshima and Ehime prefectures). Yuge is joined by two further suspension bridges to Sa-shima and Ikkune-jima island and a 5 minute regular ferry to Innoshima where the Shimanami Kaido Bridge route is.
Once you arrive at Ikina port please phone and we will arrange pick up or you can take the local bus.
