A former Antarctic research vessel sets sail again as the "SHIRASE"
This former Antarctic research vessel first set sail in 1983.
It boasts a majestic hull and a history of 25 voyages to the Antarctic.
After its retirement in 2008, it was saved from scrapping to serve as a symbol of the environment, from the wish to convey the culture of Antarctic research and the challenger's spirit.
Currently, events are held a few times annually, collaboration tours are conducted with nearby factories regularly every week, and you can enjoy tours inside the ship and a weather forecasting experience corner.
Visitors cannot approach the ship except when events are being held.
