Century old ferry route linking Honshu with Shikoku to be closed
A century-old ferry route linking once important gateways on Japan's Honshu and Shikoku islands will be closed next month amid sluggish business prospects for the shipping companies involved.
Kokudo Ferry and Shikoku Ferry filed applications with local transportation authorities Friday to end their direct services between Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture, and Uno, Okayama Prefecture, which were launched by now-defunct Japan National Railways in 1910. (AP)
