Visiting the battleship Mikasa


Here I show a gallery with same of the photographs I took during my visit to the Memorial Ship Mikasa at Yokosuka. I had a very nice time there because the ship is very well-conserved and you had freedom to move and explore any room and area by yourself. The ship also contains a huge collection of model kits representing most of the ships that belonged to the Imperial Japanese Navy, from the Russo-Japanese era to the Pacific War and even the present and modern Japanese Self-Defense Forces (JMSDF). I heard it is donated by the family of the creator and that will be exhibited at the Mikasa Museum at least until 2018. I really recommend to visit this Memorial Ship to admire this unique pre-Dreadnought battleships and also to enjoy the impressive model kit collection at 1/700 and 1/500 scales. There is also a an animated large-scale simulation of the battle with many ships, probably at scales of 1/2000. I would like to upload this video too soon.
