History up to November 1908:

The Izumo-class cruisers consisted of the Izumo and Iwate are built by Armstrong-Whitworth shipyard in Elswick, England. These ships were laid down in 1898 and completed by 1900 and 1901 respectively. This class was nearly identical to the previous Asama-class which were also built by Armstrong-Whitworth although the visible difference between the two classes are the funnels.

During the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905), both ships were assigned to the 2nd Fleet and participated in numerous actions including: the Battle of Port Arthur (9th February 1904), the Battle off Ulsan (10th August 1904), and the Battle of Tsushima (May 1905). After the war, they remained in active service.

On 17th to 18th November 1908, the ships were present at the Imperial Naval Review in the port city of Kobe. Both ships were assigned to the 4th Division of the 2nd Fleet under the command of Rear Admiral Tsunaakira Nomoto with Izumo as the division flagship. Izumo is commanded by Captain Toyonari Sayama from the 12th class of the Imperial Naval Academy who commanded the ship since 15th September 1908 while Iwate is commanded by Captain Iwajiro Mano who is also from the 12th class and commanded the ship on the same date as with Captain Sayama's appointment.

This is part of my project called “Imperial Japanese Navy (November 1908)”. In this project, I build warships of the Imperial Japanese Navy present in the Imperial Naval Review held at Kobe, Japan from November 17 to 18, 1908. The second part of this project will consist of Armored Cruisers. I hope you will like this build.
