The Nippon Maru was designed, just like the Kaiwo Maru, in Leith, Scotland. The launch took place on 27 January 1930. Both ships were used by the Japanese Ministry of Culture as training ships on the Pacific.
The Nippon Maru visited the United States four times and Hawaii five times. During the Second World War she was unrigged to the masts and ran as a cargo ship under motor power within Japan’s waters for the Post Ministry. After the war she was used for 29 repatriation voyages for Japanese citizens. From 1952 to 1984 she sailed again as a sail training ship, also again on routes to the USA, before she was replaced by the Nippon Maru II.
Since April 28, 1984, she has been a public museum ship in a flooded dry dock in Yokohama.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Nippon Maru”
This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.
Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.
The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.
