Nishinoshima is a very hilly island, so we recommend renting e-bikes, which are currently the most powerful type of bicycles available for rental here.
Insurance fee is included in the rental fee.
*Overnight bicycle rental is available under limited conditions. Please enquire when making a booking.
An e-bike is an electric-assisted mountain bike. It is powerful and slightly large in size and is only suitable for those 159cm or above in height.
1. Perfectly suited for feeling the nature of the island.
On an e-bike, you can enjoy the exhilarating feeling of rushing through the air. Witness the island just as it is while you interact with nature, savour the scenery, and feel the fresh air directly on your skin.
2. Electric-assist makes long distance and hills easier.
With the help of the powerful electric-assist feature, even the less athletic can enjoy the journey with relative ease. You can arrive at your destination with a pleasant level of tiredeness.
3. Freedom to stop anywhere and fully enjoy nature.
Another benefit of riding an e-bike is the ability to stop wherever you please. Places you might not even notice in a car will catch your eye, allowing you to experience the more subtle wonders of nature.
