Two ships from the Japanese Training Squadron, manned by a combined crew of approximately 480 officers and sailors, made a port call to Da Nang on Thursday, beginning a visit to the central Vietnamese city.

The vessels -- HATAKAZE and INAZUMA -- led by Colonel II Masaaki, commander of training vessel unit No. 1 of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, arrived at Tien Sa Port on Thursday morning.

Representatives of the Da Nang Department of External Affairs, the Naval Region 3 Command, the Military Region 5 Command, the city’s border guard and military commands, and the External Relations Department of the Ministry of National Defense held a welcome ceremony for the Japanese officers and sailors upon their arrival.
