Nippon Maru

Nippon Maru

Nippon Maru is a sail training ship, built in 1930, which provides opportunities of on-board tour. Though boarding in a wheelchair is not impossible, a couple of helpers are seemingly necessary, due to a steep gangway. As some passways on the deck are narrow, travel area is limited. Explanation panels and guide announcements in English are available in some areas. Tour on the cabin decks is not possible for wheelchair users.
