Best known as the start (or end) point of the 70km-long Shimanami Kaido cycling route that connects the islands of the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu, Imabari itself has plenty of attractions to enjoy over a few hours spent in the town. The municipality of Imabari includes a number of islands in the Ehime Prefecture section of the Shimanami Kaido, that were once home to the famous Murakami Pirates, who ruled this part of the Seto Inland Sea during the Middle Ages.
