NYK Hikawamaru, Yokohama

4.2
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.

  • Hikawa Maru and a set of tickets purchased at the Marine Tower. In the evening, I came here first of all go hikawa Maru to hikawa-Maru is admission time is faster. Because you have only memories of elementary school since the visit, little remains is the memory of those days, came just a reasonably fresh. Compared now large cruise ships and small ships is indeed compared with the relationship between Navy ships on board and have a PDS. Entrance to the rooftop deck is certainly up to 16:00 and it was I think.

  • In the Yamashita Park ship to Pacific across Seattle route was used to renovate the landmark, has also become an important cultural property. They lit up at night, and beautiful. Admission is up to 16:30, so be careful. Visitors from the outside, free of charge.

  • A nearly 100 years old ship with a long history to explore! I suggest taking the time to watch the short film at the entrance and then walking through nearly all decks. You can even visit the engine room.
  • A piece of living history. A must-see if you are in Yokohama. Or take a day to visit along with Yokohama Maritime Museum.
  • Wonderful ship "The Queen of the Pacific", standing as a History !! She was one of the only two Japanese ships to have survived in the World War 2.. A must go place in Yokohama.. Lovely & Royal interiors.. You can enjoy the beauty of the park from the upper deck.. Entrance Fee costs only 300 Yen.
  • These ocean liners from the thirties were still in service as cruise ships until the late seventies. The Hikawa Maru is not in an excellent, but still quite ok condition. The visit takes you to the main stations of the ship, including the bridge and the engine room.
  • Awesome museum, full of information - in English, shows dining areas, cabins, the engine room, the deck. A great experience for all ages.
