We took this visit as part of the pass (1200¥) to the Hakkoda-Maru ferry, ASPA observatory and Nebuta museum. This pass is so worth purchasing if you have a free afternoon in Aomori. The story of this vessel coming to be in Aomori is worth watching on the theatre (no English). My partner and I had a great time wandering around the displays taking pictures. The rail line deck was fascinating (you can't get on the rail carriages, but it's still fun looking around).

If you like boats or just want to learn more about transport and life around the Tsugaru strait, be sure to visit. There is information on both the Seikan ferries and life around Tsugaru in general. You can visit a lot of the ship, from the smokestack to the captains bridge and the cargo hold with historical trains. Sadly you can't enter any of the trains. They also show a video about the Tsugaru strait ferries which is pretty easy to understand even with limited Japanese skills.

This ferry is now a museum that tells the story of 100 years of sea transport between Hokkaido. There are dioramas of life in Aomori as well as a well planned route through various parts of the ship including the train deck with carriages. The museum does not have any english translations of the exhibits which is a shame, but the pictures and other displays tells the story quite well.

The Seikan Ferry Memorial Ship Hakkodamura is an amazing time capsule of Aomori life. There are life scenes all through the boat.

The ship permanently moored to the dock rocks gently as you explore from the highest point in the exhaust stack on top to the lowest parts of the massive engine room. The remaining train and carriages in the hold show how products and people were transported in the recent past.
