The Nippon Maru is a museum ship that is anchored in Yokoyama harbor, right in front of the Yokohama Landmark tower. The Nippon Maru was launched in 1930 and was used for the training of naval officers. Visitors learn about the life of the ship’s crew and get a chance to visit the ship from the deck to the engine room.

I hope you may find here some inspiration!
