The pon-pon sound made by the engine is endearing

Pon-Pon Boat

  • Kitakyushu-shi Tobata-ku

The Wakato Ferry connects the Wakmatsu ferry landing and the Tobata ferry landing in the Dokai Bay. The ferry is affectionately called the “pon-pon boat” because of the sound of its engine. Over 500,000 passengers ride this ferry every year. The ferry departs every 15 minutes and travels a distance of 600 m in 3 minutes. Take some nostalgic photos with views of the Wakato Bridge.
