Access from Takamatsu Airport or Station to Ogijima Island ferry “Meon”

Coming to Ogijima Island, in both cases, you come by trains and planes, the last transportation you take is the ferry from Takamatsu port to Ogi port. Here, you can see how to get to the Takamatsu port from Takamatsu JR train station, and from Takamatsu airport, which is also called Takamatsu Sunport.

tl;dr? Here’s the map pointing at the ticket vendor store of the ferry.

From Takamatsu Airport to Takamatsu JR train station

Getting from Takamatsu Airport to Takamatsu JR train station is simple. There’re  buses which wait for the airplane passengers of every flight. The timetable of the buses from the airport to JR station is based on the arrival times of the flights, which means you don’t need to wait for a bus and you don’t have much time to stay at the airport (there’s not much to do on that small airport ;)).

Once you get off the plane, it’s one way from the place to baggage claim, and to the ticket vending machine of the bus to the Takamatsu JR station.

A less than ten minutes walk from Takamatsu JR station to Takamatsu port

Once you get to the Takamatsu JR station, you walk to the Takamatsu port which will take you five to ten minutes. It’s a simple way so you don’t miss it but one thing you need to be careful is the timetable of the ferry.
