Shimizu, Japan - docking at Okitsu (industrial) vs Hinode (tourist) port


Recommended Posts

I'm having some odd problems with the search function, so apologies if this has been brought up recently. Has anyone been on a ship in Shimizu that has docked at the Okitsu Port rather than Hinode? A tour agency I'm working with has brought up that our ship, the Diamond Princess, is docking at Okitsu in April (which is a far more industrial port than Hinode) and we might experience problems trying to get taxis, as they're not typically allowed into the industrial areas. I'm looking at the possibility of having our tour guide drop us off at the S-Dream Plaza after our tour, and then getting ourselves back to Okitsu, but if the taxis aren't allowed to do drop-offs in the area, then I'm more concerned.


Has anyone been in Shimizu lately that wants to share their experience? Especially if you docked at Okitsu... Has Princess (or other cruise lines!) offered shuttles out to town? Are the concerns about getting taxis totally overblown? Thanks!
