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!

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
