History Museum
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.
