    Nice way to transfer between Korea and Japan.
    • Good transfer between countries. We did enjoy this way to travel, as opposed to another flight. Relatively easy, despite our family having limited Korean and Japanese. Website could give better information on facilities, such as transfer to and from ferry terminals, especially shuttle bus and we did not realize that meals were included until on board. Nice surprise, as the food was good local cuisine. Would recommend.

    Comfortable way of travelling
    • we stayed for xmas holidays in Busan / South Korea and planned a short trip (3 night stay) in Kyoto / Japan. we decided to take the ferry Busan - Osaka -Busan instead the airplane. it was a breathtaking and comfortable journey between this two amazing big harbour cities. the onboard staff were very friendly and competent, and the included two meals (dinner and breakfast) were various and delicious. We will never forget this journey and can recommend it fully!
