[Special]: Explore Kure on an e-bike

[Special]: Explore Kure on an e-bike

Have you ever ridden an e-bike?
They make going uphill easy and traversing level ground a breeze.
Riding an e-bike is a great way to explore Kure!
This time, I want to share an e-bike I used to show a friend from Taiwan around!
We chose the VOTANI Q3.
To our surprise, this small and compact e-bike was quite powerful.

The streets in Kure are wide and safe for riding an e-bike.
I paused my bike, took photos, and conversed as I passed by captivating landscapes and buildings.
Stopping the bike and taking pictures while enjoying conversation for sightseeing was a blast!
I also recommend visiting Nakadori (shopping arcade) to enjoy Kure’s local specialties. We could easily stop by a café and enjoy Kure cuisine.

Comment from my Taiwanese friend:

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to take my time to explore Kure on an e-bike during this trip.
I appreciated the city’s rich architectural history and culture, and I also experienced the kindness of the locals and indulged in the delicious local specialties.
We reached Alley Karasukojima from the city in just 15 minutes!
We were very impressed with the up-close view of the submarine at sunset.

Konnichiwa! My name is Anne.
I live in a port town called Kure City, 40 minutes by car from Hiroshima City.
We have many beautiful islands. There is an abundance of seafood and fruits.
The place is surrounded by sea and mountains. You can experience walking on narrow streets, hiking on mountains and even climbing stairs.
Strolling around the town is also enjoyable.
You will surely find your own Seto Inland Sea trip here!
