Cool tour

Very interesting tour. Only takes a couple of hours, but you can go faster or slower, whatever you choose. Most of the ship is open to the tour.

Moored in a quiet corner by the rose garden old liner ship form early 20th century. Well preserved, with the atmosphere of the time of the Titanic. You can feel the spirit of those times of slow journey through the Pacific when no one was in such a hurry. For fans of marintime stuff and ordinary traveler is a nice... More

My son and I really enjoyed our visit to the ship. You can tour the ship in around an hour. It gives a fascinating insight into the role the ship played in Trans-Pacific passenger travel and cargo trade. A step into a stylish bygone era - be sure to take in the lovely Art Decco interiors and the wheel house.... More

This ship is anchored next to the sea walk in Yamashita Park, you pay just a small fee to do a tour inside, its worth taking the time, it's a great history lesson.

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....
