Tour the Hachinohe Harbor on the Niida Maru

The Niida-maru is a boat that visitors can take to tour around Port of Hachinohe. Far from a regular tour boat though, the Niida-maru is a dinning boat as well. Enjoy a fresh-cooked meal while seated on traditional tatami mats as you watch the port scenery go by. Eat your fill of fresh seafood, seasonal produce, freshly fried tempura dishes, and Hachinohe’s local sake such as Mutsu Otokoyama and Hassen.

The boat can be chartered to cruise around and enjoy the scenery without food as well. The boat is a perfect way to see the night views of Hachinohe’s port and factories, which are a must-see when in the area.
