'Nihon No Kaa Ferii(=Japanese car ferries; History of Japanese Car Ferries)', a reference book on Japanese car ferries was published on February 23, 2009. The book covers almost all Japanese car ferries since 1934.
How about using a free e-mail service, such as hotmail or gmail?
BTW, I went on board the ex-Ferry Lilac (now Princess of the Stars) about 10 years ago. She plied between Otaru and Maizuru with her running mates, Ferry Lavender and New Akashia in those days. They were large car ferries, and at least they were free from sinking, I thought. Unbelievable accident!
Forgive me for not communicating so far but I was trying to find a way to solve the problem with my ISP. Thank you very much for the info about the ill fated PRINCESS OF THE STARS. She was a fine vessel and she had a really sad end. Philippines are well known for their loosen legislation at sea and this accident came as no surprise to the international shipping community. I hope sometime this situation will be corrected and all the responsible for these tragedies punished with the gratest penalty.
Unfortunately, I haven't fix the problem so far. I don't have much time to cope with it. I will see what I can do from next week Many, many greetings from Greece SPYROS ROUSSOS

Do you know a German ferry magazine, 'FERRIES'? I've written articles on Japanese car ferries for the magazine before. I wrote an article on the Higashi Nihon Ferry's latest fast ferry, Natchan Rera last year (in German). If you'd like, you can read the article.
Now, I'm concerned with a book on ex-Japanese ferries in Greece. The book will be out in Greece in the near future, and written in English language. I believe the book will be useful to you.
Hello Tsuyoshi! Nice page! Congratulations. It is very difficult to get information about Japanese ferries here in Europe. This is sad. I hope that the webmasters of Japanese homepages will create more translations into English. I am hungry to read more about Japanese ferries. Great work. Kind regards from Germany Carsten
Hello Tsuyoshi, Thanks for extra info about TOKYO MARO. I have an overlong post card of TOKYO MARU and DIAMOND OKINAWA, EMERALD OKINAWA, GOLDEN OKINAWA, NAHA MARU as well as normal size cards of GOLDEN OKINAWA, KARIYUSHI MARU, EMERALD OKINAWA, SUNSHINE OKINAWA and PRINCESS OKINAWA. YES, I have spare cards of Sydney ferries, TT Line ferries and P&O cruise ships and other Australian ships Will be happy to exchange. Best Wishes, JOHN
The Tokyo Maru had no sister ships. Her predecessor was the Himeyuri Maru (later, Dona Paz, she sank in 1987). The Tokyo Maru (3,510 gt) was built at Onomichi Zosen in 1969, and plied between Tokyo and Naha (Okinawa Island). She was sold in 1978.
BTW, I'm also a collector of ship postcards. But I have no postcards for exchange now. If I get spare postcards for exchange, I will offer to swap with pleaure.
Have you got postcards of TT Line, Sydney Ferries, or P&O Cruises Australia? I'm very interested in them.
