"Kaiyo Maru Youth Center" – the Last Battleship of the Tokugawa Shogunate.(Esashi)

Experience the appearance of people living during this turbulent period.
The museum is a recreation of the battleship which is said to be Japan's strongest.

The "Kaiyo Maru" battleship played an active role as the flagship carrier for the Tokugawa Shogunate at the end of Edo period.
While being touted as Japan's strongest, the Kaiyo Maru ran aground and foundered due to storm surges in the sea of Esashi during the Hakodate war, the final battle of the Boshin War. A full-size replica was reconstructed in April 1990, based on the ship's original blue prints from the Netherlands and today serves as a museum.

It was Japan's first underwater excavation and out of the 32,905 historical artifacts which have been retrieved, about 3000 artifacts are on display to the public.
Would you not like to understand from experience the appearance of people who lived during this turbulent period such as Takeaki Enomoto or Toshizo Hijikata?
In addition, including the area of the administrative buildings is registered as "Esashi Sea Station", there is also a "Puratto Esashi" that sells the specialty products of Esashi.
