This is my trip in Feb this year in a small island in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan. We stopped and bought so many local fresh produce and cooked in our lovely cottage. Even in Feb, we were very careful for the virus. Then decided to rent a car and didn’t use any public transportation there. Our decision was right. We really enjoyed islands along shimanami Kaido road and found amazing views from many spot. Most of JR major station have rent a car services nearby and easy to book it online with English website.When you will have a chance to visit Japan someday again, enjoy local cities like me with less crowds, fresh air and meet heartwarming locals.
