The ferry leaves every 10 minutes or so, from both directions, so you don't need to plan ahead your timing. It is very comfortable, the view is great, and the price is fair, making it a great way to travel to and from Sakurajima.

We recently took the ferry to visit one of Japan's active volcanoes. Everything on Japan runs exactly as scheduled and the ferry was no exception. Refreshments are available and the outside deck provides a good vantage point to take pictures.

It's a short trip but we all enjoyed the scenery. Fare is very reasonable too. Food in the ferry was OK also.
