>Japanese Squadron in Istanbul

>Yesterday a small squadron of 3 Japanese warships have arrived in Istanbul.

Japanese warships especially training ships, do visit Istanbul almost in every other year usually as a stop of their training cruise.

This visit was no exception. Two of the visiting ships, TV-3513 JDS Shimayuki and TV-3508JDS Kashima are training ships. Kashima is a pure bread where as Shimayuki started her career as a destroyer. She was converted in 1999.

The last ship, DD-153 JDS Yuugiri is a Asagiri class destroyer.It is always nice to see ships coming to town from different and far places.
