UMITERASHI(うみてらし) is a ferry operated by Kyushu Yusen (九州郵船) that connects Fukuoka to Tsushima and Tsushima to Fukuoka, and started service on July 1, 2021 on the Fukuoka (Hakata Pier) – Tsushima (Hidakatsu) route.

The Waninoura district of Tsushima City, Nagasaki Prefecture, is home to Japan’s largest native population of the Hitotsubatago flower, which blooms in May each year. The 1,125-ton, 81.79-meter-long ship uses the Hitotsubatago’s alias UMITERASHI.

How do I make a reservation for UMITERASHI ?

There is no reservation system on the Umiterashi.

All seats are 2nd class, so it is first-come, first-served.

During peak season, boarding may be restricted, so it is necessary to arrive at the boarding area early (50 minutes prior to boarding for 2nd class groups with reservations) to complete boarding procedures.

No special discounts were offered through Internet reservations.

Kyushu Yusen’s discount system is limited to high-speed vessels.

How many minutes in advance do I have to make a reservation for UMITERASHI?

If you arrive just before the ship departs, you may not be able to board even if you have a reservation.

If you wish to board a vehicle, you must complete the boarding procedures at least 1 hour and 30 minutes before departure, so be sure to arrive at the port well in advance.

Free Wi-Fi available on board UMITERASHI

九州郵船うみてらし船内で使える無料Wi-Fiの利用方法が書かれた紙

There was a free Wi-Fi “FreeSpot” on board.

We were able to connect, but the connection was strong and weak, and rather unstable, but usable.

The Wi-Fi guide (published in December 2016) posted on the Ferry Chikushi, the last time I boarded the ship, included instructions for connecting the portable game console PS Vita.

Two years later, the Wi-Fi guide (issued in June 2018) on the ferry Umiterashi “PS Vita” connection instructions had disappeared (lol)

My impression of the UMITERASHI

This time I boarded the Umiterashi from Tsushima (Hidakatsu) to Fukuoka (Hakata).

The ship was very clean and very comfortable.

It takes about 5 hours one way between Tsushima and Hakata, so if you want to go sightseeing in Tsushima, you can fly, but why not take a relaxing and inexpensive ferry “Umiterashi”?

If you are going to board the ferry “Umiterashi”, please be careful!

Have a nice cruise!
