Nippon Maru – A Training Ship And Its Memorial Park

As we followed the walk way after getting off the Landmark Plaza, we saw a classic ship just outside the plaza. The ship is one of the few classic ship that I saw in my travel adventures. It has similarity in the Enterprize ship that I boarded when I was in Melbourne in terms of both of them can sail through the directions of the wind. Nippon Maru was way bigger and a bit more modern compared to the Enterprize.

At first I did not know the name of the ship, since I am using an app in my mobile phone, I just discovered that the ship is called Nippon Maru. I also learned from brochure that I got that Nippon Maru was a sailing ship for training which built in 1930s.

The ship is actually open for visitors but we never get inside as we were overwhelmed and overjoyed in the city as soon as we started strolling around. The park where Nippon Maru is docked is called Nippon Maru Memorial Park. Beside the said classic ship is Yokohama Port Museum. Same with Nippon Maru, we did not get inside in the  museum to maximize our limited time in the city.

  1. The Nippon Maru actually looks quite modern in comparison to any of the other “old” schooners I have seen. Yet, come to think of it, the ship is probably just about my age. Maybe all I need is a new coat of paint!

    • That made me smile. Yes, it still a modern compared to other sailing ship and to think it was built 1930s, which was amazing how advance the design and technology of Japan. Thanks for coming back again. I really appreciate it
