Continuing my cycling journey across Rebun Island, I left Cape Sukoton and started heading back south across the grassy clifftops. I passed a few monuments along the road but since I can’t read Japanese I don’t know what they said.
When I got back down to near the middle of Funadomari Bay I turned onto a road that cut through the interior of Rebun Island. While the coastal roads of Rebun are largely flat, the ones that go through the middle of the island go up and down hills. At times I started to wish that I had opted for an electric assist bicycle instead of a regular one. During the summer there are large patches of wildflowers that cover the hills of Rebun. I was there too late in the year to see these but it was still a lot of scenic landscape for me to enjoy as I peddled along. My next destination was Cape Sukai where I’d do a final bit of sightseeing before starting the long journey back to the ferry port.
