Here’s a little timetable I picked up last summer. While reading one sounds like quite a simple task, in the heat of the moment when rushing to catch a ferry, it can sometimes catch you off guard.
First up then, a few of the main words to note:
You’ll see that this boat goes between 宇野 (うの) and 直島 (なおしま), taking 15 minutes. In the columns, we see 便 (びん) which means the ‘vessel’. In this case it is a boat, but the kanji can also be used for airplanes. We then see 宇野発 and 直島発. The kanji to note here is 発 (はつ) which is means to ‘set off’ or ‘depart’. Hence ‘departing from Uno/Naoshima’ – the timetable shows the times of boats leaving Uno and Naoshima. Be sure to catch the one going in the right direction!
That's not all! Log in to see the rest of this lesson.
