Seaside Dinner - Kurushima Strait

Seafood does not get any fresher than this. You pick your dinner among the many tanks inside the store and then a hibachi is filled with burning coals to grill your feast upon. It's very good and very messy.

This island is among the chain of islands for the Shimanami bike route.

Wait for it.

Magnificence of the Kurushima Strait

The strait is very turbulent and the size of the bridge is unbelievable. Only when you see how small traffic is from a distance do you get a concept of how large it looms over the strait.

The water is full of whirlpools that pop up and disappear through the deep turbulent water.

Riding the Strait of Kurushima

It's hard to describe the bridge, you have to experience it. The islands are mostly uninhabited. There is one settlement on a larger island that is sparsely populated.
