Yukikaze (Japanese Destroyer, 1940)
View on the ship's deck, looking aft from her bow. Taken at Tokyo, Japan, on 26 May 1947, where she is to be exhibited to representatives of the leading Allied powers.
The escort ship Shisaka is at right. Both ships had been employed repatriating Japanese nationals from overseas, and were stripped of armament for this service. They were later transferred to the Chinese Navy.
Note Yukikaze's deck plating, with raised plates attached for non-skid purposes, and her anchor and line handling equipment.
