Seikan Ferry Memorial Ship Hakkodamaru, Aomori

(3.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Before the Seikan tunnel opened in the late 1980s, ferries used to connect Hokkaido and Honshu, as commemorated by Seikan Ferry Memorial Ship Hakkodamaru. The self-guided tour of the ferryboat starts on the promenade deck, now a museum displaying photographs and dioramas that depict the lifestyle of the port's people. See preserved cabins, the command bridge, and the open-top deck, then descend to the lower part to check out the engine room. Highlights include the vehicle deck, displaying a historical express car, diesel locomotive, and mail car. Seikan Ferry Memorial Ship Hakkodamaru is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Aomori Edition.

  • Observation raised the ship was very comfortable ship and operation rooms, freight services, deck, all. It is contrasted with the opening of the Hokkaido Shinkansen.

  • Parents born in Hokkaido I childhood, summer time in Hokkaido, Japan went. Seikan ferry was used once to MURORAN went by sleeper train from Ueno. In a Dim memory train came to see for sure, knowing what is remembered on his boat, but it was really real. Believe it or not during the ship's four track has been laid in! Also seems could directly aboard the ferry from Aomori station and then boarded the train line was left. I was surprised by the size of Seikan ferry had made dozens of boats ran ferry 20 flights in one day, the memories far outweigh.
