    Two Japanese Navy Destroyers visits Sri Lanka

    Two Japanese Maritime Self Defence Force (JMSDF) ships, "Takanami DD-110" and "Ohnami DD-111", arrived at the Port of Colombo on 22nd February 2012 with the Commanding Officer, Escort Division Six, Captain Takaki Mizuma onboard. The ships are returning from a counter piracy operation off the coast of Somalia and in the Gulf of Arden.

    "Takanami DD-110" and “Ohnami DD-111” are both destroyers. Each is 151 meters in length and has a displacement of 6,450 tons. Each ship carries a complement of 190 personnel. "Takanami” is commanded by Commander Syouichi Yonemaru while "Ohnami” is commanded by Commander Tsutomu Yoshino.

    Both ships will remain in Sri Lanka till 24th February and their crews are scheduled to take part in a series of special programmes organized by the Sri Lanka Navy to strengthen the friendship and goodwill between the two Navies.
