I'm pricing out a potential trip to Yokosuka, Japan between flying there and renting a car or taking the ferry with a car.

I found a Japan Guide on ferry prices between Okinawa and the Mainland online. It looks like you can take 2nd class (without a bed) for 15,000 yen and also bring your car for 89,000 yen, which are probably both heavily discounted right now due to the pandemic.

My question is: Do you need to get both a passenger ticket (2nd class and above) and to pay for the vehicle for the 25-hour trip, or, can you pay just for the vehicle and stay in it the entire time?

Thanks in advance!

The ferry car fee includes the cost of one person. Rooms are 2nd class, but there is an additional charge if you want a higher rank.
It takes 50 hours from Tokyo to Okinawa, so it is better to send only the vehicle. Unless you like boat trips.
