Hi Tristin,

I have contacted MT moderators many times over copyright issues, or in case that completely wrong vessels were shown under specific names. Every time their reaction was prompt, but I have never asked them to change/amend vessel data.

Cheers

The name "りげる" actually translates as "Rigel", and there's even a pilot vessel with the IMO number 9130341 connected to this name, but I don't know if it's the same one.

Hi Marc, this is the "Daiyu Maru" ("大祐丸"). This name, however, is rather common, so I don't know which one of them.

Hi Marc,

Your "City of Kobe" photo belongs to the "Kikusui", MMSI 431005194.

Cheers

No. 3 is indeed "Jubilee", IMO No. 9038256.

No. 4 is the "Ashinoko Maru", you got it right.

Cheers

Number 2 is "Shintokyo Maru" (新東京丸 - note that it's written right to left on your photo!), IMO No. 8351261, I will check the other ones soon.

Cheers

It's the "Hakone Maru", Marc. Smiley

Hi Marc,

In this case, a photo of the entire vessel would also help. Smiley

Now, there's a question of the name (which is correct as you put it, TENYUU), but there's also the way this name is entered in AIS. And Japanese names are often entered in AIS without double letters (Osaka, for instance, although the correct way would be OOsaka).

So, here's the same situation: the name of this small pusher tug (right? Wink ) is "Tenyuu 2", but AIS shows "Tenyu 2".

Cheers

Hi Marc,

Just post them here, I am sure that there will be people willing to help. I've "identified" the one you linked in your post, btw.

If you have a name written in "proper" Japanese characters (kanji), and not the "letters" (hiragana or katakana, which are much easier to decypher!), you could try this site:

https://kanji.sljfaq.org/

You can draw the character there as you see it (just make sure you tick the "ignore stroke order"), and then paste the result in google. This is how I deal with the identification of Japanese kanji names; this is how I got the "Kamikawa Maru". Smiley

For hiragana letters, try this:

Thanks for sharing, Jack.

Lessons to be learned here.

Thanks for your standard excellent work, Robbie.

I see container ships are starting to pick up...

Rest in peace, dear Jadran. I had hopes until the very end.

So, let's finish the story of my Japan trip.

After checking out the ships at Marugame, I took a train back to the mainland (I call Honshu island "mainland", as the other main Japanese islands are smaller) to see the gas carriers under construction at Kawasaki Sakaide shipyard:

Then I returned back to Takamatsu on the Shikoku island, a busy ferry port with plenty of ship spotting opportunities:

(OK, that one was taken last year.)

I took a ferry to Uno, to see if I could catch any traffic during the crossing. There was not a lot of that, just maybe this one:

...but I got to see the new reefers fitting out at Takamatsu Dockyard:

Then I added another shipyard to my Japan database, Mitsui in Tamano, with some navy refits, as well as some bulk carriers:

Then I took a bullet train back to Kokura, and then a local train to Moji, of Kanmon Strait fame:

And that was it, a train to Fukuoka, and a short flight back to Korea.

Thanks for your attention! Smiley

Thank you for your kind words, Phil.

As a matter of fact, I am a class surveyor currently working on newbuilding projects in Korea, and my job did get me on some business trips that would otherwise be very difficult to arrange (like that one 4 years ago, when I went to Bangladesh), but my shipspotting hobby is a passion in itself. You could say that it started as a byproduct of my work, but then expanded far beyond.
So, I usually go to Japan (or some much more distant destination) on my own time and money... Smiley

Cheers

Vlad
