Watch: This Luxurious Japanese Ferry Feels Like a Cruise

by Jori Ayers Jul 8, 2021

Although Japan has some of the most rigorous travel restrictions, like a list of 159 countries that are denied entry and the news that there will be no spectators at this year’s Tokyo Olympics, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to experience the beautiful things the country has to offer.

The creators behind the Youtube channel Solo Travel Japan are helping to ease the itch for travel to Japan, giving us an in-depth tour of the MOL Ferry Sunflower Furano from Tomakomai to Oarai. This luxury ferry is filled with plenty of premium options for passengers.

A premium room is spacious and can fit three people comfortably. There is a balcony, full bathtub, TV, refrigerator, pajamas and slippers, and even an air cleaner. The ferry has many open spaces if passengers want to relax outside of their room. Other public areas include a small shop, a laundry room, a kitchenette, vending machines, and, of course, the buffet.
