Japan-DPRK ship

by Manokincs Online Now Oct 15, 2005 at 6:23 AM

It's been a long nurtured dream of mine to go to the DPRK. I was just wondering, is there any way of getting into the country from Japan? I'd get my visa from one of the European Embassy's and then take a ship from Niigata.

1. Is there a passanger ferry/ship from Japan to the DPRK and more importantly, is there on back!

2. Is it possible to get an agent to organize a trip for a group enering by ship?

    If you managed to enter the Hermit Kingdom, do kindly share with us in VT! As far as I know, N.Korea does not welcome independent travellers unless you are coming in a specially arranged tour group sanctioned by the N.Korean government.
