ferry from busan to osaka?

Does anyone know if there is still a ferry from Busan to Osaka? I can't seem to find any recent information about it.

Yep,

 

It's called the Panstar and goes daily.

Here are the details off the visit Korea page

http://www.visitkorea.or.kr/ena/GK/GK_EN_2_3_1.jsp#Ferry%20Route

Here is the Ferry's official website

http://www.panstar.co.kr/#

and here is the place you can get the best bargains. Where you can get a boat / hotel deal for 100-150 bucks inclusive. If you buy the tickets directly from Panstar it's going to cost you 125 bucks one way! They have an office in Busan at 초량  subway on line 1. English isn't great but if you print off from the website I am sure they can help you.

Registered just to say this.  There is still a Panstar ferry from Busan <-> Osaka, but it's hard to find on their sites, both Korean and Japanese.  They seem to primarily do cruises now.  Anyway,  here are some links:

Busan <-> Osaka Ferry Prices

Order Tickets Online (if you can figure it out, I couldn't).

Call this number to order: 1577-9666.  Press 3 for English.  Call from 9am to 6pm; they have a lunch break from 12:00 noon to 1pm.

 

Hope this info helps someone.
