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

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

Visited both the ship and the museum beside it. Both very worthwhile. Plenty of signs in English and English speaking guides.
