Otaku Shimakaze Birthplace Pilgrimage

KantaiCollection-Shipyard-Pilgrimage-1

The ever increasing popularity of moe anthropomorphized battleship game Kantai Collection has roused further interest in otaku, leading them on a journey to the Maizuru Naval Arsenal Shipyard where Shimakaze‘s impressively equivalent WWII battleship was constructed.

The shipyard is known for having created several of the game’s more notable aquatic forces of destruction, with a public event also having recently taken place, involving a friendly tour, a doujinshi sale and other Shimakaze-related antics.

Further events and tours are being scheduled for July, with plans on restructuring the area in promotion of the upcoming Kantai Collection anime – should the more traditional attractions of nearby Kyoto not possess enough appeal.
