Hikawa-maru

Hikawa-maru Review

Moored on the waterfront, more or less in the middle of Yamashita Park, is the Hikawa-maru. The ocean liner was built in 1929 by Yokohama Dock Co. and was launched on September 30, 1929. For 31 years, she shuttled passengers between Yokohama and Seattle, Washington, making a total of 238 trips. A tour of the ship evokes the time when Yokohama was a great port of call for the transpacific liners. The Hikawa-maru has a French restaurant, and in summer there's a beer garden on the upper deck.
