Have fun during traveling time in a passenger boat bound for Niijima Island!


%e6%96%b0%e5%b3%b6%e6%9c%80%e5%88%9d
 

Hi.
It may be a good experience to visit a remote island when you travel Japan.
Niijima (新島), a part of Izu Island chain (伊豆諸島), which belongs to Tokyo, is one of the best choices when you plan to stay in a remote island.

 



 

Why?
It’s not only because the island has an easy access from Tokyo, but also because you can enjoy traveling by a passenger boat which departs from Tokyo at night!

 

Today, I’m gonna introduce how to use a passenger boat bound for Niijima island!

1. Make a reservation on the Internet

 

Firstly, you make a reservation on the site of Tokai-kisen.
You need to create an account, but you can receive the 15% discount during busy season, and 20% during non-busy season.
For those who want to know the fares, please visit the site.

 

 

2. Go to Takeshiba Sanbashi (竹芝桟橋)

 

Takeshiba Sanbashi (竹芝桟橋) is the place where a passenger boat departs.
It’s closed to Takeshiba station on a monorail named Yurikamone (ゆりかもめ).

 



 

When you arrive there, firstly visit a terminal.

Show an e-mail that you received when you purchase a ticket through the website at a wicket.

 

3. Get on Sarubia-maru (サルビア丸)!

When you get your ticket at the wicket, get on a passenger boat named Sarubia-maru (サルビア丸)!
Usually boarding time is 10:35 pm, and departure is 11:00pm.
I recommend you should be there with your ticket around 10:00pm, because, as you know, Japanese people usually obey schedule.

 

Sarubia-maru stops not only at Niijima, but also Ooshima (大島), Rijima (利島), Shikinejima (式根島), and Kamitsushima (神津島).

It’s a special second class cabin.

It’s said that it’s like to sleep on a carpet with a blanket.

If you are tall, be careful.

The cabin has a low ceiling and you may bump your head on the ceiling.

 

The second class cabin is for people who don’t mind sleeping in an all-sleep-together-in-a-huddle area.

If you choose a second class seat, you just have a reclining seat.

When you feel hungry, you can eat at the restaurant which opens until 12:00am.
After 12:00am, people come to the restaurant and enjoy chatting there.

When you would like to buy alcohol, you need a Japanese driver’s license in order to certify you are eligible to drink alcohol.

If you want to eat after 12:00am, you can buy some snacks at an automatic dispenser.

 

Don’t forget to enjoy the night views from the passenger boat!

Tokyo bay is very famous for beautiful town lights at night.
Especially, those around Haneda Airport (羽田空港) is amazing!
