car ferry from Kumamoto to Shimabara

I am planning a self drive holiday in Kyushu. Can anyone advice how do I drive to the Kumamoto port to board the car ferry to Shimabara? I will visit other attractions and have either map code or telephone number. But I do not have either for the ferry port.

The map.


Click on the blue kanji lines just below the maps for larger pics.

Note that all fast Ocean Arrow ferry is off line from April 4-12, 2012 duty to maintenance. Other times there may be extra runs. Net reserve for 15% discount. www.kumamotoferry.co.jp/03oceaninfo/index.php

Other slow Kyushu Ferry is running everyday. The same port.
