The SpaceThe Ogata House is the best place when you visit Shimanami Kaido as a cyclist. It is the 100 years old Japanese traditional house endured through huge earthquake in a past. Big roof, beams, and white wall are worth to see. This house itself creates quiet, and classic, sometimes artistic atmosphere. Views from the house is nice because of it`s location, up a hill. Especially the sunrise watching from a deck is wonderful. The color tone of sky, mountain, and ocean changes time by time. And you will see a shiny red road on the ocean. I call it " the happy sunrise."
