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.

    When GW went in the family. Children was curiously exploring the ship. Introduction to the history of the AO ferry, engine room and closer look at adults and around. So you can go out on the deck, sunny day was very pleasant. If you are interested in the history of the AO ferry, the ship inside (including the engine room)!!

      Walk from JR Aomori station, exhibited in about ten minutes so far.  And, sometimes, embarked from Aomori to Hakodate, but now the ride seemed quite big ship at that time, but even so did not like feeling. I felt the flow of time.

    It is personally the most memorable in Aomori tourist spot. It is a vehicle exhibition room could see here is that the ferry didn't, learn about the history, role and decorated favor particularly surprise me was there on the ground floor and basement engine room. Often found in vehicle exhibition room in the carpeted track, had played a role a great deal in terms of rail transport 8 Konan Maru. Overlooking the large and heavy engines ran the 8 Jia-Maru "was impressed with car trains at that time are displayed intact, so watch for the first time only in favor engine room real. Its too large size / complexity, just "dude!" was not only that (^ ^;) Also guide so you can see the wheelhouse and radio communications room, let's demystify our commentary, study hard now. Looking back on the whole tour route was in exhibition of dolls, how people of that time found better. Visiting Aomori for the first time this spot is especially recommended is the one you want to. Can and this admission is 500 yen, aspam Observatory, wrasse, asamushi Aquarium and set tickets are sold, so to buy and other spots to visit at great rates!
