Focus on history
Through photo exhibitions, models and interactive screens (Japanese and English), the Maritime Museum in Yokohama shows both stages of port development - the forced opening by Commodore Matthew Perry - and also the evolution of shipbuilding technologies.
The Nippon Maru
The Nippon Maru, most famous sailboat Japan, is a witness to history. Built in 1930, this training ship was dry-docked and restored to its original specs after 50 years of loyal service.
During the top to bottom boat tour, the captain's cabin remains one of the favorite attractions. And once a year, you can watch the hoisting of the 29 sails of Nippon Maru. A unique show!
