Shodoshima is an island located in Kagawa prefecture. "Shodo" means small bean and "Shima" means island. It is a small island shaped like a bean. There are several ways to go to Shodoshima from Osaka. I think the best way to go there is riding on ferry from Kobe. At Kobe ferry terminal, a ferry leaves at 6:00 am and arrives in Shodoshima at 9:20 am on weekdays. It takes 3 hours and 20 minutes. A ferry leaves at 8:00 am on weekends. I paid 2,490 yen for a one-way ferry ride plus 6,000 yen for car fare. 500 yen was added to the one-way fare because of weekend. The ferry passes through under the big bridge called Akashikaikyoohashi as shown in the video.
