Korea to Japan

Hello All,

My name is Matt, I'm new to this site. I've been riding for a little over a year in South Korea. I am planning on taking my first international trip to Japan this summer.

From what I've read on this site it looks like I need Carnet to do this. I don't really know how this works so is there anyone with info on how I would go about getting one in Korea?

Also if someone knows the best ferry to take to go from Korea to Japan that would be really helpful.

Thanks a bunch.

- Matt

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)

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
