Hikawa Maru is a 163.3m-long ocean liner docked at Yamashita Park, Yokohama. It was built in 1930 for the Japan-Seattle line by NYK Line.
Having been in service for 30 years, Hikawa Maru made 254 voyages across the Pacific Ocean and carried more than 25,000 passengers in total during its lifetime.
During World War II, it was used as a government impress ship and a special hospital ship for the navy.
Since 1961, the ship has been kept at Yamashita Park, and was reopened to the public in 2008 as NYK Hikawa Maru.
Visitors can tour the Art Deco-style dining room, the special guest rooms and other rooms were renovated based on the resources of the prewar days when the ship navigated on the Seattle Water Route.
In 2016, Hikawa Maru, the only surviving Japanese cargo-passenger ship built before World WarⅡ, was designated as an Important Cultural Property.
