Two Japanese Sailboats Together;

This is  a series post from previous one. I wrote about "Nihon and Nippon" in my previous post.
I'd welcome comments about it as well, thank you very much 

 Nippon-maru (日本丸) and Kaiwo-maru (海王丸)
Under the terrible weather, my friend and us have been to see two sailboats (which are the school ships) on 3rd. They were opened to the public. This special event was in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the opening of the port in my pref. My husband eagerly wished to see them knowing about this through TV.
How I wish it were a fine day without wind and rain so that we could enjoy seeing these boats with all sails set...
 Nippon-maru (日本丸)
Kaiwo-maru (海王丸)





Two Sailboats were docked like this.

  I took a picture of them together from the market building where we had lunch. 
This was the first time these two sailboats docked together.


This picture is from Wikipedia page with all sails set...
Certificate I actually got inside of the ship :-)


Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting you soon;

Miyako, I really love the ships. It would have been nice to see them with the sales up, but the pictures leave that to our imagination. Thanks so much for sharing these, good friend!

Dearest Miyako,
Indeed the sail boats without the sails up still look very impressive. One can only admire the very complex mast building.
Hugs to you and wish you the very best in Japan for the typhoon; wish it passes by without damage.

It's interesting we have two ways of calling Japan. For no particular reason, I feel "Nihon" sounds more official than "Nippon."
Those ships are gorgeous! I'm sorry the weather was not good, but they look really amazing without sails set, too. I love those goddesses. They are beautiful!

Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend!

They're beautiful even without the sails flying -- you can actually see how they work better that way. Beautiful boats -- the goddesses are lovely.

You know we would love that tour!

I bet your bad weather is the same storm system that is causing the two hurricanes that we have been worried about for Hawaii. (Our granddaughter and her family have moved there recently.) It looks like they are going to be OK now. I will hope for a good season safe from storms safe for you as well as for her.

Oh I forgot to comment on the language post below. And I see that Nippon is in the name of the one tall ship. I have never heard the word Nihon but have seen Nippon many times over the years and did know that it was the Japanese word for your country. I wondered what the name of the other tall ship (Kairo) means in English.

They are beautiful, Miyako, even without the sails! I love the blue stripes and the beautiful Goddesses. It looks like one is playing the flute! Your husband must have been thrilled. Hugs xo Karen
