I thought I would start a thread on Japanese Maritime Self Defense Forces (I guess we can put all Japanese Self Defense Forces here).

The new JMSDF 25DD Destroyer is coming along.

This is to be DDG-119. And the last pic is the 2nd in class I believe, haging had its keel laid:

Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF)

WATERS EAST OF JAPAN (Nov. 4, 2016) Petty Officer 3rd Class Xavier N. Woods directs an SH-60K Sea Hawk helicopter from the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) on the flight deck of the forward-deployed Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Barry (DDG 52) during Keen Sword 17. The exercise is a biennial, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff-directed, U.S. Pacific Command-sponsored Field Training Exercise (FTX). It is a joint/bilateral FTX designed to meet mutual defense objectives by increasing combat readiness and interoperability between Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) and U.S. Forces. Barry is on patrol with Carrier Strike Group Five (CSG 5) in waters east of Japan supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

Recent photos dated 11.14.2016 of JS Izumo (DDH-183). The photos were found in a Chinese military site. No specific captions other than this one I found on a diffrent website;

Izumo class helicopter destroyer as built by Japan Maritime Self Defense Force destroyer large helicopters, the MSDF is the largest ever built warships. Izumo level with full formula flight deck, starboard and other types of aircraft carrier ship island layout, full-captain 248 meters, 38 meters wide flight deck, the standard displacement of 19,500 tons and can accommodate 14 helicopters taking off and landing at the same time operate five helicopters.
I believe these photos were taken in Yokosuka.
