One of the most populous city in the island of Kyushu Japan is Fukuoka. It is said to be Japan's 5th largest city and Japan's 10th most populated cities. As this place is closer to Seoul Korea, Fukuoka has been a harbor city for many centuries and a fast-becoming one of Japan's most liveable cities. You can travel from Fukuoka to Korea and China by riding a ferry service known as the Beetle.
The Beetle, also known as Unitobukabutomushi in Japan, is a Hydrofoil Ferry Service operated by JR Kyushu departing from the International Ferry Terminal. The Beetle constructed and began in 1990 to connect Hakata and Hirado. The ferry service is offered twice in a day and the journey time is approximately three hours. It speeds up to 80km per hour which is very fast and efficient. Ferry schedules are subject to change depends on the season. Fee is around $170 (terminaland fuel surcharges not included). You can book your reservations online from JR Kyushu Home page.
The Beetle Ferry is excellent for budget travellers. According to locals, travelling to Seoul by Beetle ferry is generally much cheaper instead of the airplane. It is also considered as an alternative for people who want convenience. Unlike the airplane, no need to arrive two to three hours before the ferry leaves. There are not much high-end security, no check-in, and no immigration which is not very hassle to Beetle's passengers.
