Port of Oarai (Ibaraki Port,Oarai District)(area:KANTO/IBARAKI)

World Heritage Spring Summer Autumn

Since the first car ferry arrived in March 1985, the Port of Ibaraki in the Oarai District has continued to develop into a car ferry base that connects the Tokyo metropolitan region and Hokkaido with 12 ferries a week. A new passenger terminal and footbridge were completed in October 1994, and the port now bustles thanks to its superior functionality, amenity, and convenience.
*The 4th wharf where large passenger vessels can dock was completed in October 1995, increasing its functionality as a marine-related recreation base.
*All Kita-Kanto Expressway lanes have opened, dramatically improving access to tourist spots in the northern Kanto region.
*Overview of the facility (4th wharf): The pier is 240m long (260m planned) and the water is 8m deep (9m planned).
