Located at Mikasa Park, the Memorial Ship Mikasa is a warship that holds a significant place in Japan’s maritime history. Built in the late 1890s and officially commissioned from 1902 to 1923, the Mikasa served as the flagship of the Japanese fleet during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904 to 1905.

After the Mikasa was decommissioned, it was preserved as a memorial ship from 1926 onwards. Significant restorations were undertaken in the early 1960s, and the open to the public ship is seen as a point of national pride.
