You should arrive 15 minutes before sailing. The ferry "terminal" is a pontoon directly opposite the turn off route 54 into Kishi Port. Free parking is on the left.

The ferry sails in waves up to 4metres. (!) It seats up to 97 passengers, there is a "kneeling" area for those who prefer to adopt the seiza position. The ferry is modern and clean. We recommend sitting in the open air at the back.

Do not be fooled by this ferry's demure and pedestrian look - it goes like the clappers and you could probably water-ski off the back....

Ferry departs from Kishi port. There is no bus and Kishi is about 8.5km from Maebaru station (on the Chikushi Line, a continuation of the subway).

By car: Take route 54 off route 202 west of Maebaru heading for Keya. Note: this is 202 proper, not the bypass. Do NOT take route 54 off route 202 at Imajuku, route 54 is a circular road and this will take you the long (albeit scenic) way round. Kishi is on one of the (many) ways to Keya. Once you are in the Shima-machi area, there are excellent bi-lingual signs to the major places of interest.

(Chikuhi line)
15 min from Chikuzen Maebaru st'n by car.
