The Seto Inland Sea is tremendously calm most of the year. Also, you will see virtually no garbage floating around or see much in the way that will disturb the pristine views all around. It is wonderful to go and visit the islands, and there...More

Boarded the Shikoku ferry between Takamatsu and Shodoshima. It was such a very big ferry that provided such an outstanding view of the islands while we sailed for an hour.

We were spoiled by the weather. Such a nice passage outside on the deck. Another advantage was that our bus came with us in the belly of the ship, so we had no problems of transportation.

We took Shikoku Ferry to Shodoshima from Takamatsu, and from Shodoshima to Himeji in our car. The charge was according to the size of your car, and included the driver. The ride was extremely comfortable.

I took the ferry over from Wakayama to Takamatsu, Shikoku. A very pleasant boat ride to cap off a busy travel day getting from Koyasan to Shikoku (funicular down from Koyasan, then 3 train transfers). Japanese public transportation is all top-notch, this ferry line is...More

We found all the ferries we used during our 4 day stay to be of a high standard and easy to use even for non Japanese speaking tourists. Be careful to check out return times.
