“Nice ship to visit...recommended!”

Sail Training Ship Nippon Maru
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 March 2014

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 minutes.

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. Excellent value!!

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, next to the Landmark Tower. There is an amusement park located near by for the kids and adults.

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 having now made a visit, I can highly recommend to others. An hour well spent especially for the 600 yen entrance fee. Majority of the exhibits are explained in writing in both English and Japanese. Several loud speakers in various locations which repeat areas of interest in English and Japanese. You follow a well marked route and it takes around an hour (self paced). There is an associated museum (on shore) which is also well worth the time. Highly recommended.
