Even if you don't think you're interested in Japanese battleships, you have to visit the Mikasa. It was built in Britain for the Imperial Japanese Navy, and so is pretty well identical to the Royal Navy's ships which ruled the seas at the turn of...More

The ship has many interesting exhibits inside and lots of great picture opportunities, the park itself is very well designed and has many interesting things to look at. This may be very well for very young children or those interested in History.

For battleship fans, there are several US battleships built just before or during World War II around the country, the 1916 vintage "superdreadnaught" USS Texas near La Porte Texas, but this ship is the last of the pre-dreadnaughts. This was Admiral Togo's flagship in the...More

日露戦争の日本海海戦でロシア海軍バルチック艦隊を撃破した連合艦隊の旗艦。帰還の折、佐世保港内で爆破事故のため沈没、引き上げられ再度戦艦として従事したが、廃艦危機などの紆余曲折を経て記念艦となり、現在に至る。 記念艦の展示手法は、上甲板と中甲板で大きく異なる。上甲板は、砲台等は全て模造物となっているものの、当時の戦艦としてのスケールや機能が詳細に分かるようになっている。中甲板は展示専用となっており、当時の面影を知る機材などはほとんど残されていないが、老若男女幅広く知的好奇心をくすぐられる展示が散りばめられて面白い。特に幕末から第一次世界大戦に至るまでの日本国外の情勢の変動や軍艦の技術向上は、何度訪れても興味を引き立たせる。 展示の内容は英語表記であり、中央展示室に設置されているいくつかの解説用モニターは、英語だけでなく中国語・韓国語でも解説してくれるため、外国人でも楽しみやすい。日本海海戦を短縮したVRは非常に興味深い! 元は軍艦という関係上、昇降は階段のみで狭い。人がすれ違えるかどうか程度の幅しか無く、勾配も急である。障碍を持つ人は非常に利用しづらい。艦橋の通路も狭い箇所があり、柵や手すりがあるもののはしゃいでいると転落する危険性がある。小さなお子さん連れの家族は要注意だ。 It was originally the flagship of the Allied Fleet which destroyed the Russian Navy's Baltic fleet in the Russo-Japanese War. Overcoming the crisis of being mothballed, it is welcoming tourists who visit as a memorial ship now. The display method is...More
