  1. Tania より:

    Hello,

    Assuming we cannot use the Japanese booking site (online reservation), is it possible to just go to the location directly and buy on the spot?

    • Tonsuke, webmaster より:

      Hello Tania,
      In that case, I recommend you make a reservation on the phone or email by the previous day to avoid sailing cancel or ship leaving ahead of schedule. Just pay on the day of boarding. Have a nice trip!

  2. kimmy より:

    I’ll be in Japan this Oct 23. This is my first time visiting Japan and South Korea as a solo traveler. Before everythjng, I was wondering where do I buy the ferry “Beetle” tickets from Fukuoka-Busan and what information do I need other than my US Citizen passport? Im planning to be on the Ferry roundtrip Oct30-Oct5. Is it still available to ride… How much does it cost for these days? Thanks!

    • Tonsuke, webmaster より:

      Hello kimmy.
      You can buy a ticket at website of Beetle booking page or reservation desk its phone number +81-92-281-2315 or use aferry.com.
      Beetle’s official website offers a special round-trip tickets at JPY11,900 for Oct.30-Nov.5 today but you have to sign-up for membership and proceed with purchasing on pages in Japanese. You can also get tickets by phone, please see their information pages in English.
      I suppose you don’t need entering visa to Japan and S.Korea for sightseeing. Reservation desk staff will answer to your inquiry.

    Hi,

    Just want to inquire if visa is needed for reservation? we’re interns from philippines working here at fukuoka. we are planning to visit this december. we need your swift response. thanks

    • Tonsuke, webmaster より:

      Hello Joy Francisco.

      Generally, you don’t need visa in making a reservation.
      but I’d recommend to confirm it to ferry company for your nice travel.

  4. George Hauner より:

    Hello,

    Is there a ferry connection between Fukuoka and Busan
    for RV(small size camper)?
    Thank you.
    George

    • Tonsuke, webmaster より:

      Hello George Hauner,
      I think the New Camellia is OK to carry cars. If it is not any good, you can take your car alternatively by Kampu ferry or Pukwan ferry run between Shimonoseki and Busan.

  5. sameh ahmed より:

    Hi i want shipping a sedan car from Fukuoka to Busan, How? I speak English only
    I hope to hear from you soon
    Thank you

    • Tonsuke, webmaster より:

      Hello, sameh ahmed.
      Shipping regulations vary with legal status of you and your vehicle as conditions of your plan.
      for export sending? commercial shipment? or just round-trip travel?
      I recommend you contact with Camellia line company, they will help you.
      If it is too difficult to send from Fukuoka, please try to do from Shimonoseki by Kampu ferry company. They also has many case of sending.
      I hope your plan with success.
      from Tonsuke, webmaster

  9. たけし より:

    どなたか聞きたいのですけど。
    仁川~青島行き片道のフェリー当日の朝にいけば
    チケット買えますか?またチケットオフィスは
    何時から営業してますか?
    それか今、釜山市にステイしているのですけど。
    釜山市で、仁川~青島フェリーのチケット購入できる旅行会社とかご存知ないでしょうか?
    サイトのブッキング見てもなんか壊れているし、
    カタコトの英語は、できるのですけど、韓国語は
    まったくだめなので、電話で予約するのもちと厳しい。

    • とん助(管理人) より:

      仁川-青島のチケットは当日、窓口でも購入できると思います。私が仁川第2ターミナルへ午前11時頃に行ったときには、既に窓口は開いていました。
      希望の船室クラスを確保したいなら、やはり電話で問い合わせた方がいいと思います。国際航路ですので英語でも大丈夫でしょう。旅行代理店で取り扱ってるかどうかはわかりませんが、釜山市内そこかしこにあるツーリストインフォメーションで旅行会社を紹介して貰ったらいかがでしょうか。

  10. Tonsuke -webmaster より:

    I believe almost every ferry company accept your booking and questions by mail. Please try to do.

  11. 匿名 より:

    Do you have cabinet for two berth. Can I book by email?
