Travel Guide - Memorial Ship MIKASA


Published in travel bible the Michelin Green Guide, this is one of the unmissable historic sights of Japan. On may 27, 1905 at the Battle of Tsushima, Admiral Togo commanded Misaka, the flagship of Japan's combined fleet. Togo fought gallantly to intercept the Russian fleet and set his nation on the way to a resounding victory in the Russo-Japanese War. Making the first time an Asian country had overpowered a Western power in the modern era, the war symbolized a seismic shift in the geopolitical panorama. Touring the battleship, preserved in its original state, visitors can learn the background and details of the battle and get to know the characters involved. Some charming moving models bring the maneuvers and all aspects of the battle to life.
