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.

  • You can see rooms for long time operation at that time. Active luxury cruise ships are moored at Yamashita district landscape and when fit from the deck, too.

  • 冰川丸就在山下公園港邊,門票很便宜,300日圓,入口處還有免費置物櫃,可以空手參觀,十分貼心,進到裡面後,一切都比我想像中好,原本以為只是看一艘退役郵輪,但可看之處實在太多了,動線規劃的很完善,船內也整理的很好,結果待了快兩小時,建議來到橫濱,不可錯過這便宜優秀的景點。 
  • While strolling in the Yamashita Park will drop you. There is a war on a big ship remained well in the long history of the thing and I was impressed. Each room, dining room, library, children's playroom, as that period is considerable facilities. You can see also the captain's cabin on the upper deck there is a large engine room under, will be overwhelmed by the size of the engine. Each detailed explanation understandable, there was spectacular. Persons with disabilities-sided hemiplegia, stairs is often also the railing so much without difficulty, we could see. It is a passenger saw Japan's modern 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.
