And by the looks of it, it’s going to be pretty effing cheap too! Plans to resume the ferry after a 30-year hiatus were announced this week in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Revolution of 1911, because apparently Sun Yat-sen was real tight with a couple of Japanese friends from over there.
The word on Weibo has it that the ferry will start running as early as November, and the 20-hour journey will only cost around 1200-1300RMB round trip! Last I checked, that’s like half the time and way cheaper than the Osaka Ferry. We’ll let you know when prices and schedules get confirmed.
