Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, Sail Baltimore, the non-profit group responsible for bringing visiting ships from around the world to Charm City since 1976, is honored to welcome the spectacular Kashima, Setoyuki and Asagirl from Japan for FREE public tours! The Japan Training Squadron includes two training vessels, JS Setoyuki (TV 3518) and JS Kashima (TV 3508) and a single Asagiri-class destroyer (DD 151). The visit to Baltimore is part of a 168-day around the world cruise, and will see more than 750 Japanese Sailors and 200 recently commissioned ensigns in the city. The Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force Ships have conducted annual overseas training cruises since 1956 for Junior Officers and those who have completed the General Officer Midshipman’s Course.
