●●Ojika Island Access
From Port to Port Across The Sea
Welcome to Ojika Island!

Our small island is located around 60 kilometers west of Sasebo Port in Nagasaki Prefecture. You can reach Ojika from Sasebo in as little as 90 minutes via a high-speed boat, or a regular ferry that makes the journey from Sasebo to Ojika in about 3 hours. Alternatively, there is an overnight ferry leaving Hakata Port in Fukuoka city around midnight, reaching Ojika at around 5 AM.

VIA HAKATA PORT, FUKUOKA

Save time with the night ferry Taiko! This ferry leaves the Hakata port in Fukuoka city at 23:45, reaching Ojika at 4:40 the next morning. Taiko is a large ferry with spacious shared rooms as well as private rooms. Passengers can board the ferry from 21:45 having enough time to get a good night’s rest before the next day’s adventures. Once you reach Ojika Island you will be able to get some extra rest in the nap room at the ferry terminal.
