1-10-1 Tsuchido Onomichi city Hiroshima pref
It’s a 4 minutes walk from Onomichi station if you aren’t stuck at a red light.
Total distance of Shimanami kaido(way) between Onomichi and Imabari, the other end is nearly 80km, and total elevation is about 500m in one way. There are 6 islands between both cities, and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the inland sea along the way. The standard route is well marked with blue line as nobody can lose their way, and there are also other islands and courses beside Shimanami Kaido for various levels of cyclists. There are many places for relaxation on the standard route, so even beginner probably can be completed in a day.
