Out into Suruga Bay – S-Pulse Dream Ferry – 2 [Shizuoka]

I got on the Dream Ferry with “Izu Dream Pass”. Maybe I should explain about this ticket more in detail. Please see this PDF. There are 3 types of routes, “Koganeji Route”, “Wasabiji Route” and “Fujimiji Route”. I chose the red course “Koganeji Route” this time. With this ticket, taking Koganeji Route for example, you can take the Dream Ferry, Tokai Bus and Izukyu Line for 3 consecutive days. Though with each ticket, you can take the Dream Ferry only once ( to go or to come back ), you can use Tokai Bus, Izu-Hakone Railway and Izukyu Line as many as you like, as long as you are in the right route. Such a good deal, isn’t it ?

Now, by the crew’s yell, I look out to the sea. What I saw was……Whales ! Two whales were there with their back emerging from the sea ! ! He said it was quite rare we could have seen whales. Pictures ? You can’t blame me for it ! Because it was only a moment or so and too impressive to press the shutter button. Maybe I should be more professional……^^;

Anyway, he also said we could sometimes see dolphins and if they were around the ferry, he would announce it to the passengers. Surprising service, isn’t it ?
Now, let me show you in the Dream Ferry.

The picture in the left is the store where I met two friendly ladies. Please feel free to ask them for beers or guidebooks. The picture in the right is the “Ocean Room” that anyone can make use of for ¥500/adults or ¥250/children. The view from here is so magnificent just as the one from the captain room ! No reservation required. Please purchase an admission ticket at the vending machine beside the store.

When I went out again to eat Tako-Yaki, the ferry was almost in Toi Port. Tako-Yaki in Dream Ferry, especially Suruga-Yaki, is very famous and tasty with Sakura Shrimp in it. Please report me when you’ve got a chance to try it.

Toi Port is quite different in circumstances from Shimizu Port, surrounded by mountains. The water is much clearer and many people enjoy fishing. Toi is one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Izu area. Toi Onsen hot spring, Toi Goldmine, Toi Swimming Beach, Fishing Park and other tourist spots.

My plan was to visit Koibito Misaki “Lover’s Cape” next. I got off the Dream Ferry and said good-by to it. Very tranquil air. A little bit too hot. I walked up the slope to the Route 136. There, the bus stop ! 10 minutes to go. I’d been taking some pictures from the bus stop until the bus appeared.

Next time, I’ll report about Koibito Misaki.
