Sailors of the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) take down the Rising Sun

during a ceremony at sunset on September 6 at the stern of the JMSDF Yugiri, a 3,500

ton vessel that arrived at Kampong Som with two other ships-the training ship JMSDF

Kashima and the destroyer JMSDF Murasame-- as part of a worldwide training program.

The three ships and 700 seamen spent the last four and a half months circumnavigating

the globe before docking in Cambodian waters. From here they return to Tokyo on Sept

20.
