      • This was a nice leisurely float-across. Very easy to arrange, check in and move on. The gift shop has great stuff for the kiddies. Lovely!

      • I'm used to ferries in England - drab boring vessels, that do the job and get you from A to B. This is not the case in Japan, the Tsugaru ferries typify Japanese culture - beautiful, innovative and funky. It was a real pleasure to travel on this vessel, and to top it off the sea was calm as well!
