FERRY YAKUSHIMA 2 Recommended ! Cheapest shared 2nd class guest room

折田汽船フェリー屋久島2船内の2等客室

The room I booked this time is the cheapest 2nd class room on Ferry Yakushima 2.

There is a fitting room in the corner of the room where you can change your clothes!
There was a CRT TV in the room, and it was playing old Japanese movies.

I slept while listening to the sound coming from the TV instead of the radio.

The pillows provided in each room were leather type.

The pillows were torn and had holes in some places, so I used a towel I had brought with me on the pillow.

I ordered the meat udon.
The udon was a bit stodgy, but the sweetness characteristic of meat udon was just right, and the broth was delicious!

My impression of the Orita Kisen FERRY YAKUSHIMA2

I boarded the Orita Kisen Ferry Yakushima 2 and traveled from Yakushima to Kagoshima.

Despite being a car ferry, I had a comfortable journey without experiencing significant swaying.

Considering that the high-speed ferry costs twice as much, those with extra time might find the budget-friendly option of Ferry Yakushima 2 appealing.

For those planning to use the Yakushima ⇔ Kagoshima route on Ferry Yakushima 2 in the future, please travel safely!

Wishing you a pleasant voyage (^-^)/
