  • As Mikasa is built in 1902 it represents the last battleship existing before the Dreadnought era started 1905. The battle it represents is also the key stone of Japans naval power in the Pacific. The ...  more »
  • My kids enjoyed this ship and seeing the different rooms in it. It takes about an hour and there is a play ground area right off the ship as well as rock and water gardens and even a water/light show ...  more »
  • A great visit, a beautiful boat. Very interesting displays, however there is some Japanese military propaganda going on, but that's expected of a war memorial/museum. Town around is also worth a visit...  more »

  • Had a blast walking through the Mikasa, feeling all the equipment and checking out the exhibits. Being able to interact with some parts of the ship was definitely worth the admission fee. Spent an hour and a bit here.
  • It is interesting indeed, but I wouldn't call it a museum battleship. At its current state, it's just a standard war museum shaped like a battleship. Appart from the capitan quaters, there isn't much /ship/ to be seen - no stuff like engine/boiler rooms or turrets interiors. Also, all parts restored after ww2 are of visibly low quality, with zero attention given to details. Main turrets restoration is an abdomination. However, overall, it does, look impressive from distance. Museum itself focuses on the pre ww2 naval warfare history of Japan Empire and is well made.
  • The tour of the ship is very similar to what is offered ship-tours in Hawaii. It starts out with a short video that gives decent background of the ship and its history. After the video you explore the ship. As you go there are helpful panels that give brief descriptions of what you see.
  • Great staff, 60 min long boat tour, well planned by the museum on the guidebooks. Last time I visited, I arrived 30 minutes before closing, but the good old man allowed me in, pointed out the shorter 30 mins tour for me and gave me a senior's discount since I won't have a full 30 mins left to explore the scene.
  • If you're a military naval history fan, and are not put off by light revisionism and SDF recruiting, then this is for you. Adults ¥600. Not disabled friendly. Toilets and vending machines on board.
