MIRAIE was photographed by Ship Freakazoid as she passed thru the Kanmon Straits during the Harbor Festival (Minato Matsuri - 港祭り) in Mojiko, Kitakyushu, Japan in May of 2022.  An Olympus e520 DSLR camera and Zuiko 150mm lens were used to photograph the vessel.  It was nice to see this ship passing thru and passing by container ships, etc.  Nice change of pace!
