ILSHIN POLARIS ROYAL - Roro Cargo Vessel passing thru Kanmon Strait December 2021

 

Ilshin Polaris Royal - Roro Cargo Ship in Kanmon Strait 12/2021

Ilshin Polaris Royal recently (Dec. 2021) passed thru the Kanmon Strait and under the Kanmon Bridge. Good looking vessel. Nice red color. The Kanmon Strait sees lots of marine traffic and Roro ships like this Korean vessel are a common site. The Kanmon Straits are quite treacherous and larger ships often utilize the services of pilot ships to guide them. The Kanmon Strait runs between Honshu Island (Shimonoseki City) and Kyushu Island (Kitakyushu City). Shimonosuckites and Kitakyushites are often greeted with the wonderful scenery of passing ships, boats, and sometimes submarines.

TORONTO ( Wallenius Wilhelmsen ) Roro Auto Carrier Vessel

Meet TORONTO. Toronto is not that place in Canada but a RORO auto carrier in the Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet. This amazing vessel is 200 meters long and 32 meters wide. It is a very impressive ship!  Toronto - a Wallenius Wilhlmsen Roro Auto Carrier Vessel 001 It was photographed as it passed thru the Kanmon Straits on March 7, 2022 (JST). Toronto was on its way from Kanda Japan to Incheon Korea.  Toronto - a Wallenius Wilhlmsen Roro Auto Carrier Vessel 002 As it passed between the cities of Kitakyushu and Shimonoseki it looked like it was bigger than the buildings it passed by. Even the large buildings in the Moji Ward of Garden Paradise Kitakyushu look small next to this ship. Toronto - a Wallenius Wilhelmsen Roro Auto Carrier Vessel 003 It looks almost as tall as the Kaikyo Yume Tower (海峡ゆめタワー) which is the phallic shaped tower in the left of the photograph above. The tower is no shorty, either. It stands erect at 143 meters and makes any man jealous. Toronto - a Wallenius Wilhelmse
