Aged like fine wine, a brief visit to Yokosuka and the HIJMS Mikasa

Recommended Posts

Some of you may know that I was briefly in Japan with my wife for a vacation/honeymoon combo. For part of the trip we decided to pick some things we really wanted to do, hers with staying at a ryokan and making me play tour guide (which admittedly I'm pretty good at.) and mine was to pay a visit to Yokosuka and the Mikasa. I'm pleased to report she's in fine shape, though presently under some active restoration. They're entirely redoing her decks for example which are mostly wood. The museum itself was excellent, and if you're out that way she's more than worth your time to visit as one of the "Three Great Museum ships" (The other two being HMS Victory and USS Constitution*)

*Fun game for Americans who make the trip, there's a minor error in the museum display for ol Iron sides. See if you can find it.
