NYK Hikawamaru, Yokohama
(4.3/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • Man ship hikawa Maru's career at friends that went overseas. Anyone else at that time was a luxury liner that is quite so might try now and see the inside and become in this voyage 10 days. It is a symbol of Yamashita Park.

  • Located near the Yamashita Park. It is an important cultural asset. Crowded on weekends. It is a ship once they want to visit. Fine, so I feel the history.

  • 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.
