Landmark
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.

  • That King of comedy Charlie Chaplin also aboard hikawa Maru. Designated nationally in 2016, is really the face of Yokohama. Interested in the marine and shipping industry and I feel more comfortable with familiar. From this work I want think preservation.

  • Go to round mark Tower along the way you'll see the hikawa Maru. It is a symbol of Yokohama. This area can still glimpse into the history of Yokohama-the old dog. Please take pictures.

  • This is the name ship of yesteryear once tied Yokohama and North Seattle. Has Charlie Chaplin also visited on this ship and unpacked in Midtown Atlanta. Board has published part of the cabin, dining room, lounge, smoking rooms, children's playroom, etc.. I think you can see that watching facilities spend a long journey and travels a lot. Among them first prize is special guest bedroom, sitting room and bathroom separate, three-stage and third-class cabin but a bed just amazed world of difference. Of a difference and current rough voyage was harsh and I think, in the aircraft would arrive in 10 hours. Is the Museum worth seeing.

  • 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.
  • Very informative, from the beautiful interior design to the state of the art engine (at the moment), many things to see!
  • なかなか楽しい。
  • Hikawa Maru once had signed the port of Yokohama and Honolulu and Seattle. Too many celebrities including Charlie Chaplin on the hikawa Maru, was it the Pacific Ocean. Continued while onboard exhibit of misfortune when (horror House, etc.) now will be returned to the original décor, honoring the old boat. Art Deco interiors are elegant. Not to compete for large, luxury, modern cruise ships.

  • 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.
