Japanese Cruiser Izumo

Japanese Cruiser Izumo

Izumo (出雲?) (sometimes spelled Idzumo) was an armored cruiser of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Although very similar to the Asama-class cruisers, her differences are significant enough to classify her as the lead ship in the separate Izumo-class, which also included her sister ship, the Iwate. Izumo was named after Izumo Province, an ancient province of Japan (corresponding to present-day Shimane Prefecture).

Famous quotes containing the word japanese:

    A pragmatic race, the Japanese appear to have decided long ago that the only reason for drinking alcohol is to become intoxicated and therefore drink only when they wish to be drunk.
    So I went out into the night and the neon and let the crowd pull me along, walking blind, willing myself to be just a segment of that mass organism, just one more drifting chip of consciousness under the geodesics.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
