We went from Shimabara to Kumamoto Port and our ticket included the bus ride into the main train station. Ferry was spotless, with food available. Fast journey.

There are 2 different ferries you can take. We took the cheaper, slower one. The inside cabin part was heated (which was really nice!). Otherwise you can sit outside as well. Great views, definitely worth it!

A short but great ferry ride across the bay from Kumamoto to Shimabara. It is a 30 minute ride. The ferry takes both passengers and cars. Snacks are available on board. there are 2 levels and you can stand outside on the upper deck.
