Kaiyo Maru (the Last Battleship of the Tokugawa Shogunate) Museum幕末の軍艦 開陽丸記念館

Museum / Science Museum

The warship Kaiyou Maru struck a reef and sank off Esashi, Hokkaido in December 1868. 122 years later, in April 1990, a full-size replica of the frigate was completed. The replica ship now houses displays about the history of the late Tokugawa shogunate and about the different technologies used in the ship. Some of the approximately 33,000 artifacts salvaged from the wreck of the original ship are also on display; visitors can see how the artifacts are preserved, and can also experience a ship-sailing simulator. The museum is located approximately one hour and 50 minutes’ bus ride (Hakodate Bus company) from Hakodate Station.

          Hokkaido Areas


          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
