배를 타고 일본에 간다

Cruise ferry's route between Busan and Osaka

I have never been to Japan but I think I am going to make my first trip there soon. I have more or less decided to make my first entry into Japan via the sea route. It will take about 19 hours for the cruise ferry to sail from Busan to Osaka. It may be a long journey but I relish the idea of watching sunrise and sunset out at sea. Furthermore, the cruise ferry will sail under the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge - the longest suspension bridge in the world before entering Osaka port. That will be a magnificent sight to behold. The cheapest return ticket costs about KRW240,000, probably half the price of an air ticket - quite affordable for poor student like me.


  1. Wow...I'm thinking to go to Jpn too ^ ^ already booked the ticket, but still not pay yet ㅋㅋㅋㅋ it's exactly 2x the cruise price (for the end of year season)... ㅜ.ㅜ
    but still exciting to go there ^ ^

    Wish ur plan come true ^ ^

  2. Oh, you're one step faster than me ㅋㅋㅋ. Have an enjoyable trip to Japan.

  3. Hey! Contact me if you come okay! I'm currently staying somewhere near Osaka. Hehe, I'm Jiahui from your A2 class btw =D

  4. Hi Jiahui, how's life in Japan? I will definitely look for you when I am there because I can't speak Jap to save my life ^^;;
    I am not too sure when I will be there cos' there are still many things to keep me occupied for the time being. Hope to see you soon in Osaka. ^^
