Nice ship to visit...recommended!

500 yen to get in, which isn't great, but not too bad. Tour is preset, so you have to follow that, no random exploring, which is what I prefer. Unfortunately, you only get... read more

This is a lovely and rather large ship. While it does not have the complete charm of a real old ship, it's still impressive and when the wind blows through its sails - it's magic. Not for anyone suffering for sea sickness.

I have admit I love old ships but this display was brilliantly presented and the self guided tour really well set up. All the displays and audio are in both English and Japanese and the entire display is wonderfully preserved and presented. There is no pressure to rush you tour and the paltry 600 yen entry fee (about $6 AUD... More

Formerly a training ship in Yokohama, now sits in the Minato Mirai area dockyard. It serves as a museum and like a famous landmark in Yokohama. Worth the visit for any tourist and a great place to have a photo shoot, day or night it's still awesome =).

With a combined ticket you can visit both the Nippon Maru and the port museum just behind. I liked the visit, there are signs in Japanese and English at almost every significant place but it's much enjoyable if you have the luck of making the tour with one of the guides. During the tour you can admire the details of... More

500 yen to get in, which isn't great, but not too bad. Tour is preset, so you have to follow that, no random exploring, which is what I prefer. Unfortunately, you only get to go only one deck below; would much prefer to see engine room and forward compartment. Other than that, this was a nice way to kill 30... More

The tall ship was great to see- you could climb into the bunks, visit the helm, go into most rooms, and take lots of pictures. Plus, the museum in the pavilion was incredible. (No photography allowed in the museum). Everything was displayed with English translation & the guides were bilingual. I think we paid 700yen per person for both attractions.... More

One of the mission for this trip is to visit the Nippon Maru Ship in Yokohama. The ship is one of a good memory of my dad who spent about 2 weeks on this ship from Thailand to Japan when he's a teenager. The ship is well-maintained with informative signage from the entrance. Location is a landmark of the area,... More

Was a ship with lots of history. Well worth a visit. It has a history spanning both pre and post WWII. Most of the insides of the ship is open for viewing. Part of the ships history puts a different angle on WWII.

During a recent business trip to Japan recently, I took the opportunity to visit the training sailing ship "Nippon Maru", which is now permanently moored adjacent to the Landmark Tower in Yokohama. The vessel is an ex-merchant navy cadet training vessel. Being ex Merchant Navy myself (many years ago), have to say I had more than a passing interest but... More
