Though traveling by airplane and bullet train is the fastest way of going around Japan, it is not the best way to conveniently enjoy your trip at a lower cost yet expanded time. So instead of choosing overnight trips or short trips, why don’t you extend your travel time by sea?
The Taiheyo Ferry is one of the alternative ways of traveling in Japan which makes sure that your travel time is more memorable. Unlike other travel options, your travel can be cheaper, easier and fun with the Taiheyo Ferry as a bed and an entertainment are included your fare. For a regular line in Japan, their service is quite impressive. It is the best way to free yourself from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Make yourself at home, as the onboard facility is complete with restaurants, theaters, shops and a grand bath where you can soothe yourself at the end of a day. Just hop on board and they promise to do the rest for you. For 40 hours, Taiheiyo sails at 1330 km from Nagoya to Tomakomai in Hokkaido via Sendai. The cheapest ticket starts from 10,000 yen per person.
The Tokyowan Ferry gives you the voyage of a lifetime. It is headquartered in Yokosuka which links the lines from Yokosuka, Kanagawa and Futtsu across Tokyo Bay for a total of 40 minutes. This is considered as the most scenic method of exploring outside Yokosuka. The ferry has a reasonably priced fare which provides comfortable seating and spectacular views.
You can actually explore the vessel which consists of three upper decks. It is a great idea to take a look around, especially if the weather is nice. And if you get hungry, you can head to the Tokyo Wan Ferry Shop which sells some snacks. There are also several vending machines for drinks including beer. Plus, you get to enjoy the magnificent views of the sea.
So if you have the option to take your time and to travel at a leisurely pace, why not spend it that time on a ferry boat? You will never be disappointed with how convenient and fun it is to travel slowly by sea.
