4.3/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
Step into a landmark of Japanese maritime history at NYK Hikawamaru, a famous ocean liner that now functions as a museum. Brought into service in 1930, the ship originally sailed between Japan and Seattle, carrying passengers and cargo. During World War II, the vessel acted as a hospital ship, carrying wounded Japanese soldiers back to their homeland. Tour the elegant rooms and admire the naval engineering from the top deck, all the while considering the different ways in which the ship served her country over the course of 30 years.

  • 見remashita corner of the hikawa Maru! Indeed, important cultural properties are just there. Will not get lost in the ship's directions like, on the other hand in a way feel I did. While slowly taking pictures or videos, it took about 2 hours. It is very good. Use the toilet and in some places, and renovated during the friendly. In particular, the engine room was overwhelming. We recommend to look even better on the front as well. So show me like every corner isn't quite elsewhere.

  • 應該很難有機會登上早期的遊輪參觀吧! 藉此機會可以了解當年各種階層在郵輪上如何生活,特等室和三等室真的差好多阿!!!,跑到操作室偽裝一下開船的感覺。一艘船可以歷經多年平安退役,真的是不簡單 
  • I went to the heritage floating in a sea of Yamashita Park, and win the prize of the newspaper Japan Yusen Kaisha renamed hikawa Maru. Hikawa Maru is a cargo-passenger ship was built for the Seattle route to 0/1930. It is my first time into, even overlooking Yamashita Park ever! B deck with a first class children's room, first class dining room. Moved to A deck, first reading room, the Prime social room (sofa plush! )。 Origin of the hikawa-Maru ship, said debussey from Saitama hikawa shrine. First-class dining room entrance central staircase balusters hikawa shrine God Crest "Hearn". First-class smoking room (now is of course non-smoking), first-class rooms without private toilet bath sink only in is. First-class staterooms, sitting area and bathroom, with twin. If you now exactly how much to use... When you move to the open deck and Mirai's city skyline. Up the stairs to the wheelhouse. Return to C deck and engine room. Hikawa Maru was it was moving in a diesel engine. 2段beddo in room 3, Room 8. On the way back from C deck Gallery, towards to. Hikawa Maru was slowly turning, it was about an hour. Also feeling sick and plainly than a Memorial ship Mikasa in Yokosuka was previously not allowed off the ship safely.

  • Very informative, from the beautiful interior design to the state of the art engine (at the moment), many things to see!
  • Excellent value for money, a good tour, and some surprising history. The ship is made from parts from all over the world and has hosted Charlie Chaplain in its time. Well worth a visit.
  • なかなか楽しい。
  • On board seems to get around on foot in about 30 minutes. And inviting places place, Knightsbridge. Also on deck Yamashita Park, a bathroom from a high position. It is very historical ship. Cute Seagull in chains, Hung side by side, taking a break.

  • Film appeared "grafiti" the hikawa Maru and want to see, the other day I went. It was a very beautiful passenger-cargo ship as I don't think the hikawa Maru was built 85 years ago, in the past. Go to Seattle as a first-class passenger on hikawa Maru. Romance in a halfway house. Hikawa Maru, Japan Yusen souvenirs you can buy in shops outside the hikawa Maru. I purchased the hikawa Maru eco bags and clear. Sales on the Internet are recommended visits the hikawa Maru, so if you take a look at buying things that haven't.
