Do you remember once I mentioned S-Pulse Dream Ferry when I wrote about Fishing Park and S-Pulse Dream Plaza ? This time, divided into 7 or 8 stories, I will report my small trip using “Izu Dream Pass”.
The morning was very clear. The blue sky and crystal-clear ocean welcomed me as if they had been expecting me. I set foot in Marine Terminal, that is in the picture above, got the “Izu Dream Pass” and headed for the Ferry named “Fuji”. Over the Shimizu Port could be seen spectacular Mt. Fuji. No better day !
This Ferry connects Shimizu Port with Toi port in about 65 minutes, accommodating 450 people and more than 50 cars. I stepped in it and walked around to see the inside. There were mainly 2 types of seats. One for personal travelers, the other for families. I didn’t take neither of them. Not time to sit at ease. I rushed out on the deck to look around for pictures. Suddenly, the sound of whistle. Announcement in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean. Time to say good-bye to Shimizu Port. I’ll be back soon. (*´∇｀)ﾉｼ
I went to some places for interviews. The store ladies were so friendly to answer all my questions. Some of the staff in the ferry speaks Chinese or Korean and part of English. On the guide-board are written Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean so that visitors from abroad don’t get lost. Even free English guidebook is available at the store. She was so kind to talk about me to the Captain and so lucky I was, I could talk with him. He told me many specialized things such as the decision of operation or cancelation of the Ferry and its time, sailing conditions, radio relay on the ocean and his various experiences during operations.
Then suddenly, one of the crew yelled.
What do you think I saw ?
Next time, I’ll show you what is in the Dream Ferry.
Good day !
