Also if someone knows the best ferry to take to go from Korea to Japan that would be really helpful.
Thanks a bunch.
No carnet needed, for bike registered, in Korea..
Show up 4 hours before loading ,, prepare temporary export/import declaration, at the customs booth.
You do need to declare the temp export at your local ward dmv ,,, Have a ROK sticker and Korean license plate in English, on an acrylic plate. Banner ad making shop can make this for 10,000 Won.
Busan, Korea to Osaka, Japan (18 long hours)
Busan to Shimonoseki
Jetfoil to Fukuoka 3 hours
