Hankyu Ferry


Hankyu Ferry started service on Japan's first long-distance ferry in 1968 and continues to operate daily on the Shin-Moji⇔Izumi-Otsu and Shin-Moji⇔Kobe routes as a bypass of the Seto Inland Sea, connecting Kyushu with Osaka and Kobe. The ship's interior is like a resort hotel itself, so that it is referred to as a "hotel on the sea. After enjoying the onboard restaurant and observation room, you can relax in the open-air bath and wake up to find yourself in Osaka or Kobe. Why not enjoy a luxurious cruise while looking out at the sea?
You can be sure that the size of the ferry and the quality of the cabins, as well as the daily safety efforts, will make your cruise a comfortable one.
