I'm currently on the main island of Okinawa Japan. I intend to take the ferry to Kagoshima, Kyushu when I'm ready to leave but ...
I know both ferry companies that operate the route make a stop at another Okinawan island about half way to Kyushu called Amami.
But I don't know if I have to buy two separate tickets if I want to spend some time there.
Or is there any kind of special ticket that allows something like a hop-on hop-off service for this route?
According to Wikivoyage the ferry prices are:
- Kagoshima (11 hours) ¥8,800
- Naha (13 hours) ¥9,300
That comes to ¥18,100 which seems quite a bit more than the direct fare from Naha to Kagoshima: ¥15,200 - Is there a way to make it cheaper?
(I'll be going the cheapest way possible, which I assume is 2nd class, and actually from Motobu rather than Naha.)
