Pacific Crossing Brazil-Japan: Arriving at Hakata Port in Fukuoka

The Pacific Ocean crossing is coming to an end! After entering Japanese waters by crossing the Bungo Suido Canal (or Bungo Channel) in the previews video, the morning after we would arrive in the port of Hakata, Fukuoka.

The Bungo Channel (豊後水道 Bungo Suidō) is a strait separating the Japanese islands of Kyūshū and Shikoku. It connects the Pacific Ocean and Seto Inland Sea.[1] The narrowest part of this channel is the Hōyo Strait.

O Canal de Bungo (豊後水道 Bungo Suidō) ou Estreito de Bungo é um estreito que separa as ilhas de Kyūshū e Shikoku, no Japão. Liga o Oceano Pacífico e o Mar Interior. A parte mais estreita do canal designa-se Estreito de Hoyo.
A parte oriental do Estreito de Bungo chama-se Mar de Uwa (宇和海 Uwa-kai).

Previous video: Now we are in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on the crossing from Brazil to Japan and I want to show more of how much the Peace Boat’s Ocean Dream cruise ship moves on the not-so-pacific ocean!

The previous video we were with the Ocean Dream in Manzanillo, Mexico, on the way to Japan!

The Ocean Dream is the new Peace Boat cruise ship, but first we had to take her from Brazil to Japan. Our trip started in Recife, on the Brazilian coast where the Ocean Dream was sailing under the Pullmantur flag, passed by Curaçao in the Netherlands Antilles (Caribbean), Colon and Balboa (including the crossing of the Panama Canal) and Manzanillo, on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, which is the city I show on this video. This was our last port of call before arriving in Fukuoka, Japan.


The End Poverty 2015 is a UN world campaign. The Ocean Dream will be doing Open Houses in Japan already with the logo, in Fukuoka (Hakata), Kobe, Nagoya and Yokohama, where she departs in 08 May 2012 for the first around the world trip with Peace Boat.

O Recife foi o principal porto para o navio cruzeiro Ocean Dream da Pullmantur (em breve Peace Boat) na temporada brasileira de cruzeiros 2011 – 2012. Fizemos varias viagens pela costa do Nordeste, embarcando passageiros no Recife e fazendo escalas em Natal, Fortaleza e no paraiso de Fernando de Noronha.
