Please note that the information provided is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time we have received the same information from the Ferry Operators. The situation is changing rapidly and we will try to keep the website updated as soon as we receive updates from the ferry companies.
Hitakatsu is a port city on the northern coast of Tsushima Island in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. Tsushima Island is located between South Korea and Japan, about 60km from the South Korean mainland. The main island Tsushima was once a single island, but in 1671 it was divided into two and in 1900 by canals cut by narrow land bridges in the middle of the island, creating a "North Island" (Kamijima) and a "South Island" (Shimojima). What we call "Tsushima Island" generally includes these main islands and all surrounding small islands.
