Aircraft Carrier SHINANO
The name "Shinano" comes from the name of a huge carrier constructed in the Yokosuka naval shipyard during the last years of World War II. (It has nothing to do with the town of Shinano in Shinshu.)
Shinano, a huge aircraft carrier with a displacement of 72000t, was the world's greatest carrier at the time; an equal to battleships Yamato and Musashi. Yokosuka flourished through naval activities from the U.S. Navy, Japan Maritime Self Defense Force, and the flagship headquarters of the Seventh Fleet.
Come see us if you are interested in discussing the history of Yokosuka as a Navy town, or if you would like to see the valuable Navy-related documents.
