Information

On October 1, 2014, 'Shodoshima Kyuko Ferry' changed its trade name to 'Shodoshima Ferry', 'Shodoshima Ferry' to 'Shodoshima Teshima Ferry', and 'Marine Kanko Kisen' to 'Shodoshima Kyuko Ferry' respectively.

Tomogashima Kisen, which operates the Kada, Wakayama prefecture-Tomogashima route, was out of service in October 2014, because its Nonaura Sanbashi(=pier) was damaged by the typhoon No.19 (Vongfong), but resumed the operation on November 22, 2014.

Naoshima-based Shikoku Kisen's new ferry, Naoshima (1,099gt) entered service on the Takamatsu-Naoshima-Uno route on May 1, 2015.

Awaji City's fast ferry, 'Marine Awaji' (120gt) will enter service on the Akashi-Iwaya route in August 2015. Awaji Jenova Line will operate her.

JR Nishi Nihon Miyajima Ferry will build a replacement ship for the Nanaura Maru (built in 1987). The new 'Nanaura Maru' will enter service in November 2016.

Uwajima-based Ehime Minami Kisen closed a ferry service between Uwajima and Kushima on April 4, 2016 after the Kushima Ohashi bridge opened on April 3, 2016.

On April 10, 2016, the Komataki (V, 19gt) entered service on the Hososhima-Innoshima route operated by Onomichi City. She is the first Japanese aircraft carrier-style double-ended car ferry.

Takamatsu-based Shodoshima Ferry launched the Shodoshima Maru (1,257gt, LOA: 71.9m, Pass: 490, Car: 55) on the Takamatsu-Tonosho route on March 10, 2017.

On July 2017, Awaji Kanku Line started operating services on the Awaji Shima (Sumoto)-Kansai International Airport route.

On August 10, 2017, Uchinomi Ferry announced that the Sun Olive Sea (52gt, Pass:68), a fast ferry on the Shodoshima-Takamatsu route will be out of service from September 1, 2017 because of decreasing passengers and lack of crewmembers.
