These amazing ferries run back and forth at frequent intervals. You do not have to wait longer than 15 minutes, and they take 15 minutes to make the crossing.

We got this ferry to go from Kagoshima to Kirishima, and it lasts around 20 minutes. What makes it unique is the small udon restaurant inside, which can be eaten during the ride!
