Getting There & Away
Eight Sanyō Kisen ferries run a day to Shiraishi-jima (continuing to Manabe-shima) from the port in Kasaoka, about seven minutes' walk from Kasaoka Station. There are four regular services (¥660, 35 minutes) and four high-speed services (¥1150, 22 minutes).
There is also the larger Shiraishi Ferry (which also takes cars, from ¥1800), running four times a day to Shiraishi-jima from Kasaoka (¥530, 45 minutes). Note that this departs from a different dock in Kasaoka, about 20 minutes' walk from the station.
