From Ushibuka it is also quicker than backtracking through Amakusa to get to Kagoshima prefecture. There are ten ferries a day between Ushibuka and Kuranomoto, and if you happen to miss one, take your time at the restaurant or follow the swimming fish at Ushibuka Ferry Terminal

I knew my future was destined to be with Japan the moment I flew from Sydney to experience the atmospheric lane ways of Kyoto last century. From the skies above Sapporo to the old charm of Naha's alleyways, I have been enchanted by the beauty and variety on every island. I am humbled to have met many distinguished people in my role as Regional Partner, especially the national living treasures of Japan, such as the doll maker to the Imperial Family. From sushi cooking classes to Ninja training grounds I welcome your ideas on what you like from JapanTravel.com. Please visit us in Kyoto or Osaka and have some green tea or sake with us.
