Hi My husband and I will be travelling to Korea for 3 weeks - we will arrive in Seoul on the 28th August but as we have been a few times before we thought a 2-3 nights in Japan might be a good idea. We have only one plan at the moment (spending Chuseok with my friend in Namhae for a few days around 12th Sept) we were wondering if there were any package deals to Japan (Flight & Hotel)or if we go to Busan and get ferry to Fukuoka - we need accommodation - anyone done this?
Kangsan travel often has package deals and last minute offers.
But if you're coming from Namhae after Chuseok, you better plan for traffic to be very slow on your way to Gimhae (Busan) airport.
The ferry to/from Fukuoka will sell out about 2 months in advance over Chuseok, so book early. I've taken that ferry before and never had issues. If you don't have confirmed seats, you can be put on a stand-by list for any no shows. I've had to do that before and never waited more than two departures.
