This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile29320/Yotei-maru.htm>Yotei-maru</a></b><br><br>The “Yotei-maru&quot; was a railway ferry built in 1965 that plied between Aomori and Hakodate. Named after Mt. Yotei (Ezo Fuji) in Hokkaido, this ship traveled a total of 4 million nautical km and carried 11.78 million passengers during its 22 years and 7 months of service. It ceased operations with the opening of the Seikan (Aomori-Hakodate) tunnel in March 1988, but until then it played an active role as the main artery connecting Honshu with Hokkaido. After being taken out of operation, the “Yotei-maru&quot;served as the Japanese government's floating pavilion during the 1992 “Ship and Sea Expo&quot;held in Genoa, Italy. Since then, the ship has been remodeled, exhibited and preserved at the Museum of Maritime Science where it is open to the public. <br />
