We took a boat trip down the bay from Pier 21 to NYK Hikawamaru and would highly recommend a visit to this lovely old lady of the sea. It was fascinating to watch the documentary regarding the history of this vessel and its various uses especially during the war years up to the present time. Being able to walk around... More

I didn't plan this attraction actually coz I didn't know about it. I was walking to chinatown and discover this ship. She is big and amazing. I never stepped in a cruise ship so this is my first experience. Interior is very nice, they did a good job in maintaining the ship. You can explore almost every part of the... More

We loved seeing how passengers travelled in 1930s. My husband particularly enjoyed the engine room. Lots of interesting history also written in English.

It was a brilliant winter's day - sunny and mild so the park close by was looking so pretty and the seas were calm. Many people were enjoying the post New Year celebrations./ holidays. We decided to lrevisit the Hikawaru ship docked at the Yokohama Harbour. At 200 yen entry fee for Seniors, we think we were very privileged to... More

The Japanese steamer "Hikawa Maru" in Yokohama is a very nice object to visit. The amusement park nearby makes this the trip to the Japanese steamer quite reasonable. Admission to the steamer is low and opens up the possibility to explore a fantastic steamer. You can visit a steamer of Japanese history. But a visit to this impressive steamer and... More

The Hikawa Maru was a cruise ship built in 1930 and used as hospital transport during the war. While not all of it is open, you can walk through and see the dining and smoking rooms, captains quarters, engine room, luxury passenger rooms etc. We somehow spent nearly 2 hours here - bizarre since it's not a huge museum thing....

The is an interesting way to spend a couple of hours and see just how luxurious sea travel was. The entrance fee is very reasonable. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Those people who love the world of the old steamboats crossing the ocean, boats telling stories,... those people should come here. I enjoyed it a lot.

This place has a lot of interesting things to do. Hikawa Maru ship is open to the public. I say it's a must for people into ships and history. Yamashita Park was part of the rail freight line, so you can walk the old rail lines where the tracks are still in place. If you are into photography. You will... More

This ship is obviously a very nice photo-op (especially after dark, when it is beautifully illuminated), but, unfortunately, there is nothing very interesting in it, so the tour feels a tad boring. I would've loved to see more historical information about the ship, for instance, and not just original (and many non-original) artifacts on it.
