    Thank you for the response!

    As Suzanne mentioned, coming from the Shikoku side is harder because you would need to take a car/bus etc.  If you come from Honshu there is a train to near where the port is. However, since the platforms are connected by a bridge, it is possible only one direction is accessible (because you need to cross to the other side to go the other direction).  If that is the case, it may just mean that you travel to the next station and then reverse directions there.

    On a different note, she is too humble to tell you, but Suzanne wrote a great book on her travels around the Inland Sea with her daughter.  You should definitely read it!

    Here is the review from our website: A Girl’s Guide To The Islands

    Glad you enjoy the site!
