Bike Rental Trip on Bi-Oshima Island
Amami Oshima has an area of about 712㎢, making it the third largest island in Japan after Okinawa Island and Sado Island. There are no trains on the island, and the only transportation is by cab or a bus called the Shimabus.
Therefore, while it is of course recommended to enjoy a relaxing bus trip for sightseeing in Amami Oshima, there are also many people who enjoy traveling freely and at their leisure by renting a car.
There are many bike rental stores on Amami Oshima, and we recommend that you enjoy your trip to Amami Oshima by renting a bike.
Motorcycle enthusiasts, of course, will be able to enjoy their trip more fully, feeling the scent of the ocean and the pleasant breeze in the great nature of Amami Oshima. Rental bikes will give you a different kind of trip than renting a car.
