  • "Best way to travel"

    Great way to arrive into Japan, seeing both Shanghai and Osakas ports. Once in Japan waters I loved sitting out on the deck watching all the islands go by. Very relaxing, I had plenty of time to read, watch movies and chill. The staff were all really friendly and helpful which made the crossing.

  • "Cool and comfortable ferry review"

    The boat was a relaxing two and a half days on the beautiful yellow sea. We saw some flying fish and seaweed, and it was really cool to come into Japan passing all the islands. The staff was friendly and very helpful. There is also a jacuzzi room :) Good views, good food, good times. Highly recommend.
