The Wakato ferry beneath Wakato Bridge

When I saw some site said , it costs only 50 yen to cross from Tobata to Wakamatsu ward and vice versa, which takes just three minutes. It is the cheapest ferry ride in Japan.
Oh, I'm proud of my hometown for it things.
It were general - 20 yen and children less than six years old - 10 yen until some years ago. but I think it costs 100 yen now(2006)..... as time goes on, I forgot it now all costs.
I'll check up next time, this cost too.
I have earliest memories of Wakato ferry. When I was between about two years old and a kindergarten, my step-sister often took me to there.
I liked seeing that from under motor screw propeller, splash water about.....
