The Oki Islands are made up of 4 main inhabited islands (Dōgo Island and 3 Dōzen Islands: Nakanoshima Island, Nishinoshima Island and Chiburijima Island) and more than 180 uninhabited islands. Oki’s unique natural environment was designated as a Global Geopark in 2013. Erosion has created several magnificent coastline views, including the Kuniga Coast on Nishinoshima Island, which features a stone arch and a sheer cliff that stands 257m tall. The Candle Island off the coast of Dogo Island stands in such a way that if you catch the sunset at the right angle, the island looks like a candle lit on fire.
There are three types of standard ferries (Ferry Oki, Ferry Kuniga and Ferry Shirashima) and a fast ferry (Rainbow Jet) operating from Shichirui Port (mainland Shimane Prefecture) and Sakaiminato Port (Tottori Prefecture), to Oki Islands. If your destination is Dogo Island, take Ferry Oki. If it is one of the Dozen Islands, make sure to take Ferry Kuniga. Ferry Shirashima only operates between Sakaiminato Port (Tottori Prefecture) and the Oki Islands.
Please double-check you are boarding the right ferry for your destination.
Note that the timetable changes depending on the season and the fast ferry service is not available during winter. Please check the latest timetable at the Oki Kisen Ferry Line website. Prior booking is highly recommended if you wish to take the fast ferry (Rainbow Jet).
*Please note that the ferries may also be canceled due to weather conditions.
