Does anyone have any ideas about getting from Japan to China that costs less than a grand, flights are so expensive!
Has anyone done this before?

I haven't done the journey, but I have read about a ferry that departs from Osaka and arrives in Shanghai. It is meant to depart on Fridays at 12:00 arriving in Shanghai on Sunday some time and fares start at about 20,000 yen (approx $172US at current exchange rate), but if you are a student it has a bit more of a discount. Do a google search for Shanghai Ferry Co and the listing which is a few sites down ending in .jp (has Japanese writing) is the correct page. It has an english option when you open the page, so don't worry if you can't read Japanese.
